For their latest single, The Ballroom Thieves brought in friend of the band Aly Spaltro (aka Lady Lamb) to help them out. "Woman" is a gorgeous almost but not quite folk song. The focus throughout is the vocals. Calin "Callie" Peters takes the lead while the instruments come in and out as the song needs. Even as the horns come in, you've already been trained to follow Peters' voice. Not that we needed much training. Her soulful vocals are going to command our attention no matter what. Spaltro provides a perfect vocal counterpart, and the highlight of the song is when the two let loose around the bridge of the song. "Woman" is simply a must hear for all of our readers.
