10 Songs: Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

469x470

1 – Satellite – All Time Low – The best song on an ordinary album, has the thump of anthem and a “lalalalala” hook, but it isn’t good enough to seriously signify as song or anthem, though maybe it signifies as emo as it reworks a Billy Bragg metaphor for no good reason – B-

2 – Until The Night Turns – Lord Huron – Best fade in I’ve heard since forever, and the song construction is classic in the extreme – A

3 – Old Time Rock And Roll – Young Fathers – To say I predict big things is to miss that big things are happening now – A

4 – The Last Song – Brian Wilson – This sounds like a finishing end though it probably isn’t, a summation? Maybe the deep beauty in time slowing down – A

5 – The Juddering – East India Youth – Sounds like the opening of “Station To STation” taken to insane extreme meets the fragments on Low… I wish there was more like that – A

6 – Wiggle Room – Drug Cabin – A faux country groove meets 60s lounge music – B

7 – Oh The Gods – Lee Harvey Osmond – Deep sound and fury calling to the myth in a mood marshall beat – C+

8 – Kiss Me A Lot – Morrissey – When did this guy stop being fun? There is something creepy about his emphatic and bludgeoning positions in everything and here at least, he sounds too emphatic even when he has nothing to say – B

9 – I Won’t Mind – Zayn Malik – It sure hits me as though this is a major first move, even if it will take another year to hear the finished product. Certainly, Naughty Boy is as good as anyone and better than most – A

10 – Bitch Better Have My Money – Rihanna – This is better than the West-McCartney song because it has the emphatic force of smart dance, it is actually trap, harder than usual beats – A-
