New Music Week Of July 27th, 2009 Part II: From Fabulous To Fabolous


Relator – Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn – I think this is the first Pete Yorn song I have consciously heard and I wish it was the first Scarlett Johansson because after the travesty that was her Tom Wait’s covers album “Anywhere I Lay My Head” it was my most sincere wish to never hear her sing again unless it was with me in the shower. HOWEVER “Relator” is real good indie rock and after the enervated growl she affected last year she has an off beat India Arieish voice that, if not pleasant, will probably finds its own market.

Analogue Bubblebath – Aphex Twins
Whenever a song comes on and it is both bleepy and beat box-y I guess it is the Aphex Twins and if I can feel my body moving on its synth effects I am probably right. This is from the the Optimo (the Glasgow club) Mix and it sounds like it comes from another era of dance.
 
Everything, Everyday, Everywhere – Fabolous and Keri Hilson
I was just asking Matt his opinion and he agrees: Fabolous kinda sucks but not here. Matt’s friend says the album “Loso’s Way” is great and he loves every tack. The best he has ever heard from Fabolous. Well, this song is great but is it Fab or the fab Keri?
 
Run Myself Out Of Town – George Thorogood
I used to date a girl who got trashed to “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” by this bluesy rocker Thorogood and Thorogood hasn’t aged a day or added a lick on this neat rocker.
 
Something Wrong In Paradise – Kid Creole and the Coconuts
From the “Ze Records” compilation back when August Darnell shoulda been King not Kid Creole this is a timeless rhumba with perfect maracass and bad ass drums. Unspeakably great.
 
Don’t Know Why – Smokey Robinson
Smokey will always be Smokey but certainly since 2004’s Gospel outing “Food For the Soul” his song writing has been in serious decline. So his cover of Jesse Harris’ “Don’t Know Why” solves that problem with a great song both soulful and soft.
 
Number One – R. Kelly
Featuring the ubiquitous Keri Hilson but this sounds like R. Kelly all the way, hip hop track, echoey, autotuney vocal, from ballad to dance and back.
 
Remember Me – T.I.
With Mary J. opening the song, T.I. gives one of his most powerful raps as he worries about being in jail and the track is very very hot.
 
Psychic City – YACHT
Hyped art rock band using digital manipulation to play with sounds entirely around and yet the songs still work pretty well as songs and on “Psychic City” it is kinda weird blip acoustic biting bizarreness as though everything can be solved with two turntables and a laptop. The chick singer is something new.
