Late last fall while recording “Midnight Aria” with Belle Boussole, the group let me listen to a cover they were working on. It was an unusual song choice – “Love in Outer Space” by the eccentric and eclectic jazz musician Sun Ra – but the song was absolutely beautiful. Nicole McGurn’s powerful and assured vocals and the psychedelic, dreamy arrangement are not a departure for Belle Boussole as much as a progression of their sound. It’s a very well-done song, one that showcases Belle Boussole’s artistic growth as well as bringing out the transcendental beauty of the original song.
