Weekly Music Roundup: Ginkgoa and Aphex Twin
The French-based electro-swing duo known as Ginkgoa is led by singer Nicolle Rochelle, who made headlines in April when she was arrested for appearing topless outside Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial with the names of his accusers written on her chest. Interestingly, in the 1990s she appeared on The Cosby Show four times, under the name Nicole Leach. Now, she and producer Antoine Chatenet have released a video and single called “One Time” that combines 20th century swing rhythms with a very 21st century message – “you better run now/your time is up now” Rochelle sings, while clips of old movies trace a story of gathering female empowerment. I know, it all sounds very serious and weighty; but the song is a swinging good time.
