The Playlist September 27th, 2009: Bounce Bass

Make Me – Janet Jackson – See, it’s easy. Just stick a bouncing bass under a throbbing drum riff, have Janet sing a sexy lyric and have background vocals whoop like MJ and there it is: a great dance track that should be mammoth for her. So why hasn’t she done it since Velvet Rope?

The World 99 – Pulp Victim
Hear Me (AC Slater) – Drop the Lime – Both these songs are where the bass really will get you into trouble. Drop the Lime is a blues-rock song with the melody nearly totally in the vocals and the bass riding the song all the way through. “The World 99” also bounces on the bass but it’s from not just another time but another space: all synth bass hook.

Cowboy Casanova – Carrie Underwood – Disappointing country-blues riff though Carrie is in good voice.

Baby Boomer – Monsters Of Folk – Marie Lynn and I agree that this is the surprise of the album, a Matt Ward country-folk nursery rhyme improved by James and Oberst.

Slow To Anger – Superdrag – Highlight of the daytrotter session.

Animal – Miike Snow
Bulletproof – La Roux
Lust For Life – Girls
Blame It On the Girls – Mika
Yes – Manic Street Preacher – From back when Richey Edwards helped make these guys the only band that mattered.

Something He can Feel – Aretha Franklin – This is the other Curtis Mayfield song from last weeks concert. Also from Sparkle, also a stunner. I’ve been listening to all eight songs off this album and believe it is one of Franklin’s masterpieces. It’s just about perfect and her upper range has never been purer.
