Local NYC Downtown “It” girl, as pegged by NY Magazine, Lissy Trullie released a video for her cover of Hot Chip’s “Ready for the Floor” – a clear stand out from her ep, Self-Taught Learner.

Trullie aced the cover song – a definite on-repeat type of track and one that Hot Chip should be pretty impressed with.

Check it out.



Union Hall in Park Slope, Brooklyn welcomed Lissy Trullie to jump on the small stage in their downstairs bar, packing the room for a quick 35-minute show.  The setlist covered the tracks featured in her new EP, Self-taught Learner – and included Hot Chip’s cover of “Ready for the Floor” – a definite standout during her April 9th gig.

Trullie carries that New York underground-rock sound perfectly, almost making her style and vocals feel like you’re witnessing a new Chrissie Hynde erupt naturally.  On “Boy Boy”, her baritone voice seeps through a pop-infused punk track that could have easily been inspired by New Order’s “Age of Consent” (also known as that awesome track used in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette trailer).

Just as mesmerizing as the tracks and her comfort on stage was her undeniable hotness – without the effort.  Her androgynous look is softer in person vs magazine shots – European model looks (although she’s 100% American) with a cut-to-the-chase tude.  No comedic banter between songs, just the straight up punk-rock performance.

New York Magazine got it right – she is the epitome of “downtown cool” and her show was an excellent showcase, on a smaller level, of great things to come.



Lissy Trullie, by way of New York City, masters one of Hot Chip’s hottest tracks (and one of the most covered ones), “Ready for the Floor”.  She manages to make Duffy’s ballad cover from ’08 pale in comparison.

Not to be overlooked:  Check out her myspace page, listen to “Self Taught Learner” and “Boy Boy”, and catch her April 9th @ Union Hall in Brooklyn.
