Singles Going Steady: New Single Releases Week of September 8th, 2014



So, after putting the “Singles Going Steady” name for a column to rest after first using it in 1980 and indeed having it as the initial name of rock nyc, I am ressurrecting it for a more or less weekly new singles column. Add water to taste.

minipops 67 (120.2) (source filed mix) – Aphex Twin – The big time electronic dance maven from way back, who recently got pissed at Kanye West for sampling him on “Blame Game” and then denying he did so (which, if you listen West obviously did –but if George Clinton ain’t making money from being sampled nobody is) has returned to the breach . I have to share this Patric Fallon review from Pitchfork because I sware I have not the slightest idea what he is talking about but it sounds better than these bleeps and blerps do, and they sound pretty good: “This is analog maximalism, made possible by the plinky, translucent synths of Selected Ambient Works, AFX’s restless 303 sequences, Caustic Window’s brawny drum machines, vocal abstractions à la Richard D. James Album, and an excitable dissonance owing as much to Drukqs as it does Polygon Window’s Surfing on Sine Waves. Not one frequency in the spectrum is unaccounted for.’ Say amen somebody. – B

I Did With You – Lady Antebellum – Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley switch verses and join together in the chorus –it isn’t very much – C+

Cleopatra – Weezer – Should a song named after a legendary Egyptian Queen be quite this lame? Surely not. – C

What Are You Waiting For – Nickelback – A modern age Rush, though not musically, they exist so Daughtery can have a pal to hang out. Yes, Virginia, rock and roll is dead – D+

Two Night Town – Jason Aldean – This is the unacceptable face of Aldean, a country guy with a good voice and a good ear, but he needs the song and this ain’t it – B-

Grindin’ – Lil Wayne – And Drake, and I was really excited after their tuff enough battle of the rappers this summer, but this ain’t much at all and at a little over five minute only has Weezy’s rap to recommend it –not the words, the flow – C+

The Big Revival – Kenny Chesney – This is pretty bad but hey we will always have “Flora Bama” – C-

Centuries – Fall Out Boy – The bit you’re enjoying, the hook, is from Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner” – C

Where No Eagles Fly – Julian Casablancas And The Voidz – They annoyed the fuck out of me on stage, but for all its scraping sounds and game changing left turns, the bass keeps em honest, sounds like Peter Hook – B
