10 Songs: Saturday, June 13th, 2015

hqdefault

1 – Miss Armor – Azealia Banks – A modern day “She Bop”, Azealia’s ode to break up and masturbation, is the rhythm of the diddle come to life, it jumps out in heat and desire and should’ve been the first single, a great hook filled romp and even better live – A

2 – Pointless Experience – Viet Cong – Dark noise, goth rock without the hamminess and with a really steady bass hook – B+

3 Sun Is Shining – Axwell Ingrosso – Two thirds of Swedish House Mafia with yet another slice of MOR EDM. A real disaster for dance music, and a fairly crappy song – C-

4 – Reapers – Muse – Disastrous prog rock move by a band fulfilling its own worst nightmare. They sound like Rush – C-

5 – Lipstick – Tamia – Nice soul song, slow fuze burner – B+

6 – LSD – A$AP Rocky – One of the great songs of the year, a perfect blend of sex and psychedelia, “making love under the pretty lights?” talk about a good trip – A

7  – Various Storms And Saints – Florence + The Machine – Yeah, she’s got a real good voice. But the two times I’ve sen her live I’ve been bummed out and this? This sucks – C

8 – No Regrets – Ho99o9 – The OGM and Eaddy, rapper and producer, introduce us to a world of pain on this first rate proro-punk plus exercise – B+

9 – Janie’s Silver Lining – Kevin Jenkins – Consider this lo fi art blues, the first single, the verses are superb, the chorus a wonder – B+

10 – Quarter Million – Troy Ave – You see that guy hustling you to buy his CD? well, it was Universal Recording Artist before he signed to Universal. Here he is with one Cam’ron (whose verse is a beauty) … more money, more problems and I like the  stress, he claims. Yeah, better than hustling your albums on the street.
