Singles Going Single #182 - Baby Tooth 7" (1993, Remora)

Here's a 45 I obtained from a dollar bin a few years ago but didn't give a spin until this week.  For shame, because I had been depriving myself of two excellent songs from this long departed NYC three-piece, who had the good fortune of releasing their single on a label run by Richard Baluyut of Versus/+ - renown.  Baby Tooth were fronted by Michal Sapir, a young chanteuse of Isreali origin.  Sapir's offbeat knack for melody meshes well with the brooding, dynamic post-punk aplomb of "Jet Lag," just as fittingly with the comparatively twee, flute-enhanced "Explosive Crescent Man."  Baby Tooth released an ep, Rare Book Room in 1994 that I really need to get my hands on...

A. Explosive Crescent Man
B. Jet Lag
