New Music Week Of October 12th, 2009 (Part One): Zombies and Pirates

What – Rob Zombie – I’ve been listening to Zombie for a long, long time, but I am damned if I can hear any improvement in it. The good news is he hasn’t lost any of his metal electric dawn of the living dead crunch either. So if you include his early band White Zombie that’s twenty odd years of arms outstretched, eat your flesh, fast, fast, fast, crunchy crunch crunch. Fine by me. Single of the Week

Haven’t Met You Yet – Michael Buble – This is the first Buble song I’ve heard and it’s a brilliant 70s type pop song like Leo Sayer is waiting somewhere in the wings with a fine saxophone instrumental in the middle. From singing on cruise ships to cruising to the top of the charts, he is a sex symbol for the lite fm crowd. He cowrote this song and sells it with charm.

Who Says – John Mayer – Who says John Mayer is Dave Mathews with more chicks? Errr… they both have very irritating voices but Mayer is the better guitarist though not on this fluffy pop song all about getting stoned in NYC and calling up exes. It has, how you say, humility.

Hell – Tegan and Sara – Marie Lynn swares by em, I think they are the Indigo girls for generation broke and this song is pretty and boring. Their song on the new Tiesto album is much better so maybe all they need is a better bassist.

Replay – Iyaz – Out for awhile we’ve heard this Sean Kingston type merge of pop, hip hop and Caribbean rhythms before. Iyaz does it better than most and I bet many a shorty is dropping for it.

Valencia – Josh Rouse – I remember watching this catch back in 98, 99, nurse a very bad hangover through a first rate set opening for Aimee Mann at Tramps. This swinging Latin language Samba sounds nothing like Josh did back in his Dressed Up Like Nebraska days but it sounds real good especially the toms toms.

There weren’t many new releases on itunes this morning so either it was a very quiet week or, as I suspect, there was a slowdown due to Columbus Day. Call this last song end of part one.

Old Enough – Rickie Lee Jones – We started with the undead and will end with the eternal Rickie Lee Jones. It is amazing to me that both these artist can have maintained a steady and consistent and brilliant sound. Jones recorded her masterpiece Traffic From Paradise in 1993 and this song has the same looping, atmospheric jazz feel. It’s a wonder and considering its a duet with the much maligned Ben Harper proof that Rickie Lee makes everything better. Isn’t she born again or something? Must be… Single of the week
