Going Steady: New Singles, Thursday. December 3rd, 2020, Reviewed


Free Me – 42 Dugg – he sounds like Snoop with a scratchy undertow, written in solitary confinement which makes it way too real for comfort – B+

Arabella – Live – Arctic Monkeys – I gave em “505” but this is a blues wank as proto-imminent rock bible but worse that that sounds. Alex is lucky he has that voice – C+

VINYL – BERWYN – The Trinidadian can sing in a hazy, moody blanked on beauty, and he raps but more like laps the rap, it is a late night single  and a rare beauty – A-

American Heartbreak – Black Thought, Ledisi – from the novel about the mean streets of Baltimore, Black Thought is good, Ledisi is great – B

Swimming In The Stars – Britney Spears – written for 2016’s Glory, it is a fine., 808 fueled, EDM with mpre E than usual – B

Soft Spot – Claud – Phoebe Bridgers first signing to her new label, is just completely beautiful  with a hook so strong your ears melt in a sadgirl triumph – B+

2020 – Cro-Mags – from the hardcore first kids on the block, an excellent roar and always welcome (especially that triple time drumming)  – B+

Design – Gustaf – the sound of post-punk no New York, like the Bush Tetras – B+

Unblu – Jenny Lewis, Serengeti – lovely and mellow and I get Serengeti (rap? spoken word I say), but I wish there was more song there – B

Houdini – Jade Bird – UK singer songwriter, in full melodic flight – B

I Dey There – Jujuboy Star – Nigerian Afrobeats pop is having its moment, this is cool stuff and it even sounds a little Lover’s Rock, the horn makes it special as well – B+

Anytime and Anywhere – Less Than Jake – they’ve been around for a quarter of a century, doing the same ska rocking, fun stuff, and may it never end – B

Christmas Blues (with The Weeknd) – Sabrina Claudio, The Weeknd – Sabrina has a smokey, sultry voice perfect for r&b and The Weeknd is right in his pleasure center on a blueish Christmas – B

Sonnets – Sjón, Björk, The Hamrahlíð Choir – Bjork wrote it and it the Icelandic Choral who you might remember opening for Bjork at The Shed,  sing it and you will flip out over it – B+

Shortcummings – Sleaford Mods – The duo take on the repulsive former chief adviser to Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings, and sure he is horrid, but when your chorus goes along with a “mess himself” hook, even a terrific bass lick can’t save you – C

Bougainvillea – Sly Withers – The Perth based band are pretty darn good, this is pop punk and very well handled – B+

Family Farm – The Hold Steady – another story and a strong and graceful rocker as Craig sounds the same as he always does and the song rocks with ultra finesse and power – B+
