Despite all the bucketloads of critical acclaim that Massive Attack have gotten in the press over the last two decades, I’ve never quite been able to see exactly what all the fuss was about.  Their narc-y beats are fine enough, I guess, but as a whole they’re pretty unmemorable, with the exception of the songs involving a charismatic female voice like Tracey Thorn’s (on Protection) or Elisabeth Fraser’s (on Teardrop) or even Madonna’s (on I Want You.)

I’m quite pleased with their new single, though, since it features the eternally lovely Hope Sandoval.  One of my favorite albums of 2009 is Through The Devil Softly, Sandoval’s second outing with her group The Warm Inventions, and her streak of awesomeness continues with this new single, which is entitled Paradise Circus.  The video was just released, and it features Georgina Spelvin, star of classic porn movie Behind The Green Door [Er, I mean The Devil In Miss Jones.]  Dirty scenes from the 70’s film are interspersed with clips of the frazzle-haired Spelvin talking about how she was a lousy prostitute but fine at porn, because the camera got her off more than the sex did.

It’s really cool conceptually, if edited and lit a bit annoyingly.  I can’t figure out how to embed it, because WordPress is just one of many web platforms that are pissing me off today, but Mahatma Dandy posted it here.
