If this blog had begun in 2004 (around twelve centuries ago), the first first Maldita Hits post would most likely feature You take me, you break me". Back then, no better word could describe those lazy sunsets with thrilling dance floor music better than Summerland. That is, of course, prior to the result of some hard-earned research (scavenger hunt?) for Nedelle's first release (out on Kimchee Records), Republic of Two. Who knew bossa nova and a San Francisco jazz background would merge so well? It's amazing how some music can become poetry instead of the other way around.
