Did Baxter Dury and Kim Gordon have a daughter together?

Sadly Florence Shaw's low energy vocals lack character or soundbite appeal - really feels like you're sitting bored at a beat poetry performance so put some Sonic Youth/The Fall instrumentals on your headphones to try and drown out the endless monologues.

The connection between these vocals and the music supporting them feels loose at best - and I don’t ever get the feeling I'm listening to one of the great wordsmiths of our age either.

well if it's Kim Gordon, then more likely her grand-daughter. and don't you mean Ian Dury?

No I mean Baxter, his vocals sound even more similar to Florence - he’s Ian’s son, check out his latest album, it sort of points to what I thinks lacking here in terms of vocal presence/memorable phrases

oh, sorry, I was thinking more in terms of age as parents, as Kim Gordon is about 20 years older than Baxter Dury.

Ah yeah, I was focusing more on the styles than the ages, wasn’t being that literal ;)

Kim Gordon + Baxter Dury sounds like it would own? Like i'm here for that?

It’s not even that the style of vocals is bad in theory, they’re just ‘off’ slightly - I instantly ‘connect’ with Dury’s persona and I ‘get’ what Kim Gordon is going for (most of the time at least)...don’t get that sort of breakthrough with these vocals

Gotcha. I've yet to listen but eventually will considering the attention it's getting. But i get what you're saying.
