1 – Brand New Car – Action Bronson – Somebody is ivesting serious bucks on this guy. Warners in the rest of the world, Atlantic in the US and the result is a pricey Billy Joel sample… luckily, Bronson makes excellent use of it, rapping right through the hook. Mark Ronson produced – B+

2 – Elevator Operator – Courtney Barnett – Sure, the girl can rhyme, sure she has a cracker little rhythm section and sounds like a missing link between Dylan and rap, but geez… can she please write different songs – B+

3 – Zanzibar – Billy Joel – This is the song Bronson sampled – C

4 – Get On With The Show – Van Morrison, Georgie Fame – “Too many problems, not enough bliss”? Amen… “Fiddle fiddle while Rome burns…”? Amen twice – A

5 – Short Movie – Laura Marling – Apparently she met this guy on a mountain in Denver who said that… kinda hard to deny, right? – A

6 – Lucky Number – Lene Lovitch – From the years when everyone sounded like they’d just escaped from East Berlin – A

7 – Fairly Local – Twenty One Pilots – Sounds a lot like modern Blur – A-

8 – That Means A Lot – The Weeklings – Making a case for this to be a great Beatles track even from day one – A

9 – Gonna Get It Wrong – Allisson Moorer – Tucked away at the tail of the album, a slice of beat down optimism – A-

10 – I’ll Be There – Chich – An old lick on lost tapes is reconfigured – A-
