Solange's World

Solange’s World

1. Lost On The Way Home featuring Solange – Chromeo – Man, Solange has been hot lately: beating up Hay Z and having it caught on camera, a side trip to a wedding in South America, filled it at Webster hall on the Saturday, tweeting that Mother’s Day was one of the best days of her life, and then on Tuesday, she released this masterful new r&b track with Chromeo. Hot indeed – A

2. World Peace Is None Of Your Business – Morrissey – Heavy duty irony plus by the numbers Moz like hard rock – B-

3. Chicago – Michael Jackson – Not his kind of town – C+

4. You Know My Number – Courtney Love – Generic rocker plus bad singing – C

5. Some things We Do – Swans – Crescendo’s is apparently the word of the moment – B

6. Dreaming – Blondie – Nothing much added to this 2014 version – C

7. Why Did You Go Last Night – John Mayall – Mayall can do this sort of razzamatazz in his sleep, and does – B-

8. River Lea – Nick Mulvey – Folkie meets Amaericana whatever that means – C+

9. Beautiful You – The Pains Of Being Pure Of heart – Or Peepee for short – C

10. Hahaha Part 1 – Kishi Bashi – Shimmering dance… isn’t that what the youngsters call it? Shimmering? – B
