Alex Chilton and Cristina Black Made Some Beautiful Music Together A Few Years Back

chiltonLet’s delay the speculation over whether or not these are in fact Alex Chilton’s last recordings and just appreciate these songs for what they are: One, they’re soft jams the likes of which we’re definitely not treated to everyday. Two, in addition to celebrating Chilton, they showcase Black as a talent in her own right. Black, a writer for the Village Voice and Nylon (as well as countless other publications), announced the The Ditty Sessions EP on her blog this past weekend, and noted Chilton backing her on bass from her time in post-Katrina New Orleans along with Alex McMurray on guitar and Brian Coogan on the keys. The EP is available now or you can get a primer on a few songs on Black’s MySpace. Take a listen, if nothing else to hear the least awkward eBay reference to date on “These Days.” (Via: Twenty Four Bit)
