Going Steady: New Singles 9-9-22 – 9-15-22 Reviewed

Atopos – Björk, Kasimyn – Bjork has reached that place where she sounds not weird but Bjork like -a sort of odd off electronica with powerful beats breaking it into pieces – B+

CYBERKISS 2 U* – BLACKSTARKIDS, beabadoobee – teen Kraftwerk meets hyper pop with a wild tunefulness – B+

No Body – Blake Shelton – my niece was visiting from Orlando last week and we went to Jimmy Fallon where Blake was a guest, I was sick of him long before The Voice but this is a catchy slice of fluff and he performs it well – B+

Sad Girls (feat. Rema) – Clean Bandit, French The Kid – Nigerian Rema is having a breakout year Stateside and Clean Bandit remain a top EDM band who seldom ever suck, and don’t come close on the Afrobeats plus “Sad Girls” – A-

Checkmate – Cordae, Hit-Boy – a slice of self promotion but saved from egotism through an excellent rap – B

Uninvited – LeAnn Rimes, Dave Audé – very dramatic adult oriented country rock from the born again former teen sensation – C+

WHAM – DRAM – Lil Baby Dram’s follow up to “Broccoli” and terrific live show made him more than a one hit wonder, but then he changed his name and fell apart, this is interesting electronica hip hop style (and a wild hook) but not much more – B-

Shoot It Myself (feat. Future) – EST Gee – not as good as “Chicken” but Louisvlle’s EST Gee is a terrific lyricist with a warning “Karma can’t even catch up” – B

Woke Up in Love – Kygo, Calum Scott, Gryffin – as a rule of thumb the EDM DJ singer Kygo drives me crazy, but this is a strong enough ballad – B-

Forget Me – Lewis Capaldi – that bridge owes a whole lot to “As It Was” and despite being overblown MOR, it is still heading to # 1… in the UK – C

Good On Love (with Future) – Lil Double 0 – ho hum, generic rap and Future doesn’t perform his magic for once – C+

Don’t I Make It Look Easy – Meghan Trainor – she failed her skill set years ago but this remembers what she can do with a poppy 50s meets 70s handclapping goody – B+

e-motions (with Erika de Casier) – Mura Mura – lower case hyper pop, good pun – B-

Chu Chu Song – Otoboke Beaver – J-Punk all girl greatness and as a follow up to their terrific album Super Champon it absolutely does a terrific job of thrilling like hell AS THEY MOVE MORE METAL – SINGLE OF THE WEEK – A-

Tonight (feat. Ezra Koenig) – Phoenix – did you see the leader of Phoenix getting his blood sucked out of him on “What We Do In The Shadows”? You should you know, it is better than the (what a coincidence) Vampire Weekend Ezra’s add to the banal “Tonight” which survives on its bass hook – C+

Fire – Rita Wilson, Elvis Costello – it is hard to go wrong with Springsteen’s “Fire” and Rita Wilson with Elvis Costello do a credible job with Elvis drawing “kiss” over five notes – B

Ghetto Superstar (feat. G Herbo & Doe Boy) – Roddy Ricch – “Internet, they tough as hell, outside, they cotton soft/ Drink got a n-gga high as hell, I was damn near nodding off…” hahhaaaaa – B

Opening Theme (From “Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm”) – Run The Jewels, Aqua Teen Hunger Force – better than you think it might, the duo Run The Jewels mix raps, El-P produces, and the backing tracks are thrilling stuff – B

Power (Remember Who You Are) – From The Flipper’s Skate Heist Short Film – Spinall, DJ Snake, Summer Walker, Äyanna – Spinall is the big time African DJ, and Summer steals the show… – B

Nostalgia – Suki Waterhouse – the model gone pop bummer singer with a strong tune – B

Carry Me – The Seekers – Bruce Woodley wrote ‘Carry Me’ 23 years ago and the late Judith Durham’s early vocal has been in the Seekers vault up until recently. Bruce, Athol and Keith took the song to producer Michael Cristiano who completed the recording debuted at the Judith memorial…” – B

Can I Call You – The WAEVE, Graham Coxon, Rose Elinor Dougall – The Blur guitarist with a song released to make you say Damon Albarn isn’t THAAAAAT BAD, when Rose appears half way through it gets better – B-

curious/furious – WILLOW – admirable if not special pop-punk – B-

Alone – YG – fantastic and undeniable hip hop and r&b plus rap by the admirable YG – B+
