Kay Hanley rocks the vote

One of my all-time favorite bands is Letters to Cleo, and their singer, Kay Hanley, still launches solo songs into sexy, sassy orbit with THE hottest voice in rock music.

Her new album, Weaponize, features plenty of guitar and production by USA Mike, her husband and fellow Letters to Cleo graduate. Believe me when I tell you that you need it.

The band is playing some reunion shows this fall (press and dates and posters) and releasing a b-sides and rarities record called When Did We Do That? for which you can see the cover art here. (It will include, among other gems, their covers of “Cruel to Be Kind” and “I Want You To Want Me” from the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack.) I can’t make it to any of the shows, which is a shame because I’ve never seen Kay sing live and it’s on my list of things I need to do before I’m dead.

Anyway, Kay rocked the vote with her 9-year-old daughter yesterday …


… and you can read all about it right here on her snap-crackle-popper of a blog, which also features lots of well-told tales of her adventures as a backup singer and dancer for Miley Cyrus.

Check out Kay’s music. She rocks. A lot. Possibly the most.
