Going Steady: New Singles 1-3-19 – 1-9-20 Reviewed

Radical – Amtrac, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Low key DJ track with a thumbing bass track to rest on – C+

On Somebody – Ava Max – Still searching for that follow-up to “Psycho” which should place her within spitting distance of Dua Lipa, this is her best bet so far, an EDM hooklined  chorus lifts the motherfucker where she wants it to go – B

Figures In The Landscape – Ben Watt – Typically, dreary and self-important Ben – C

I Can Hardly Speak – Bombay Bicycle Club – Typical UK band with a sense of melody that saves em from the scrap heap, their second single since 2014 is better than the first, a dreamy, multi vocal arrangement rockism – C+

Healing – Camden Cox – UK style disco diva, over produced but the beats are good – B-

Call Me – Carly Pearce – Country pop – C+

On the Back of Your Neck – Cienfue – Apparently it mixes Latin rhythms with electronic pop -except I can’t her the Latin rhythms – C

Do You Read Me? – Field Music – Sounds like a poor man’s Dave Longstreth from the UK art poppers – C+

Full Circle – Five Finger Death Punch – Full circle suggests they started one place and ended in another, in fact they’ve never moved an inch from their metalcore rock, “I know I’m never going to change the world even if I try…” Even?  – C+

Miss You 2 – Gabrielle Aplin, Nina Nesbitt – Two former teen titans sound well into their 20s in this breathy bore – C+

Wrong Direction – Hailee Steinfeld – Nice vocal, sad song that needs a good shaking especially when you realize it was written for Mail Horan (get it!) – C

Yummy – Justin Bieber – returns to his roots with this catchy but slight r&b track featuring that voice is too produced and shoulda been striiped bare – B-

Digging in the Desert – Lié – Post punkers sound like Fire Engines so get up and use it – SINGLE OF THE WEEK –  B+

20/20 – Lil Tjay – chill r&b guy with hip hop creds rap sings over a soulful track – B

Wolf – lil Tr33zy, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie – Good enough rapper given an assist from A Boogie… – B-

Savage – MIST – UK grime as written, nice hook – B

U Played (feat. Lil Baby) – Moneybagg Yo, Lil Baby – OG growl – B-

This Bar – Morgan Wallen –  His 2018 debut didn’t do it but this is a strong anthem country rocker about something worth singing about (drinking) – B+

No Se por Que Tanto Enredo – Natanael Cano – The flamenco guitar is a pleasure, the vocals annoying – C

No Sleep – No Love For The Middle Child – Lo fi, bedroom sad song – B

Happy – Oh Wonder – The UK dup have their moments here as well, but Lil Uzi Vert stole their best track – B

King Of Glory – Live – Passion, Kristian Stanfill – Christian contemporary stinker – MUST TO AVOID – D

Sinning With You – Sam Hunt – Jesus, this is nauseating. Sin this – C-

World’s on Fire – Superheart – Mediocre bedsitland – C

Wasting Time – The Mowgli’s – Indie rock, and literally, they got dumped by UMG and released it themselves. With a very clever, though I wish it was catchier, beat and counter beat and a high harmony bridge – C+

Ahimsa – KSHMR Remix – U2, A.R. Rahman, KSHMR – Strong enough remix though it seems to miss out on the singles dreamworld Indian vibe – C+

Tocyn – Whyte Horses, Gruff Rhys – UK supergroup blah it out…in Welsh? – C+

Blue Wings – Wild Nothing – synth one man band – C+

Foyer – Wild Nothing – Nice little lick and the drums come in well but another snooze – B-

Your Broken Shore – My Dying Bride – doom and gloom metalcore from the UK with a sludgy, sinking vibe, the vocals sound like English folk – B-

U DO U – Yung Scuff, Jakkyboí – sounds like a lively Lil Peep plus rock vibes – C
