Musical Pairings: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and Hercules & the Love Affair

I loved Kasey’s lemon, ricotta pancakes. This playful, creative take on an old favorite (pancakes that is) manages to call to mind the essence of traditional pancake recipes while simultaneously tasting brand new. We invited over some friends and drank mimosas while enjoying these pancakes. The result was a very happy, celebratory meal with good friends. For this reason, Hercules & the Love Affair’s self-titled album is a perfect pairing for this meal. Songwriter Andrew Butler called upon a collection of friends including Antony (from Antony & the Johnsons) to contribute vocals to this stunning, upbeat album. Although reminiscent of 70’s disco, Hercules & the Love Affair definitely feels like a fully realized evolution of the genre: something new that borrows upon other contemporary genres such as electronica, club music and house. In other words, this isn’t retro – its brand new.
