01_12215731_b3e3c2_2861095a

1 – Do You Ever Think Of Me – Corinne Bailey Rae – As mainstream jazz as Corinne ever gets, just a straightforward jazz ballad with r&b chops, co-written with, woah, Valerie Simpson – B+

2 – NO – Meghan Trainor – L.A. Reid sent her back to the lab before accepting Meghan’s current album, and she came up with this piece of recycled pop, a very catchy groove but not a very good song, and a huge hit of course  – C+

3 – Note To Self -Modern Baseball – the bridge-chorus riff is better than the verse, which sounds like proto-punk circa 2016. The song seems to move in movements, like the Front Bottoms -hey man, I love them but no fucking way  – B

4 – Twin Size Mattress – The Front Bottoms – They still haven’t matched it – A

5 – Drunk In Heels – Jennifer Nettles – “40 hour week at the quickie Mart and another 35 at home…” working class blues. A pity the song isn’t better – B-

6 – Hungry Heart – Yak – There is a real good song on the album but this art rocker cum garage stomp ain’t it – C+

7 – Golden Fruit – United Fruit – Post punk psychedelia and a n echo chamber back on us, both literally and figuratively – B

8 – Wanted You – Twin Peaks – Excellent fuzzed out pop rock dream track, the guitar solo is the solo of the week – B+

9 – Autumn – Trashcan Sinatras – A plodder – C-

10 – Feeling Is Law – Torn Hawk – Gorgeous instrumental keyboard and effects – B+
