Video: Empress Of, “Don’t Tell Me” (Live in Brooklyn)

December 03, 2012


Lorely Rodriguez, the sole force behind Empress Of, strips all the electronic whatnot off "Don't Tell Me," the pleading and fuzzy B-side from her fine debut single, "Champagne," out now via No Recordings. In Brooklyn with just a mic and a piano, she sounds fantastic. The video was filmed by the masters of eliciting brilliantly stripped-down live versions, Yours Truly. (Empress Of's website is also pretty great.)
