I long to have your long arms about me

This is only a fraction of Gigi's contributors
As far as one-off side projects go, they don’t get much better than Gigi. The band is led by former p:ano/current No Kids songwriter Nick Krgovich, who recruited a massive cast of supporting musicians for the retro pop opus Maintenant, released earlier this year.

K Records recently issued a 7″ single of “The Hundredth Time,” which is a horn-laden, harmony-drenched AM soul throwback featuring Ladyhawk‘s Duffy Driediger and some dude named Ryan Peters (who might be this guy, but I’m not sure). It’s magical and mopey in equal doses, with a stunning chorus that complains, “I’m leaning on a lamppost outside the party / And crying my eyes out / For the hundredth time.” If you’re into Brill Building pop fetishists like Camera Obscura and God Help the Girl, this one is nothing short of perfect.

    YUP! This sounds like old P:ano. Big vocals. Even the production. The Den/Brigadoon era.
