Rachael Price, the great granddaughter of Seventh Day Adventist leader George McCready Price, is a superb vocalist and this song has a ‘70s classic pop structure. This is a band that displays retro influences without smelling like a pet rock.
Cities – Talking Heads – Despite the botched geography (ancient Egypt folks), it remains a wondrous beat as Bryne catalogs the world as a series of strange observations, “I got it figured out…” he claims but does he? Deranged and brittle bouncy – A+
Shot Me Down with Skylar Grey – David Guetta – One of the most thoroughly irrelevant dance tracks Guetta has put his name on since 2010, “Bang Bng” is given a stop start tempo. Skylar’s well sub Nancy Sinatra vocal interrupted by lashings of bass and drums. Mildly irritating – B
Split Enz evolved into Crowded House and then disappeared from the US. Neil was the primary vocalist and well he is back without his brother and with a new album to boot.
