ARCADE FIRE, AFRIKAN BOY & LOLO

The new ARCADE FIRE is epic, I appreciate there’s a distinct lack of originality in this comment but it’s just so God Damn true. And if the song wasn’t epic enough, as if the video wasn’t creepy enough, they’ve only gone and got DAVID MOTHER FLIPPING BOWIE to guest on the track. Amazeballs, as that vom inducing that phrase goes.

 

The Brand Nu search feature is denying it but I’m sure you and I have chatted about AFRIKAN BOY before, yeah you remember don’t? It’s not just me is it? He did that Lidl track as well as a great guest slot on the MIA debut if I remember correctly. Well he’s back, and with his legendary rap-gusto and unique intonations, check out ‘Hit Em Up’.

 

There are several slabs of bad ass (as opposed to good or average ass) funk sown into the dna of LOLO’s ‘Year Summer Of Love’. R’n’B, Pop and Hip-Hop fuse in a menage-a-funk to create a track that with a few breaks could be a ‘Top 10 all over the radio during the summer’ smash, shame it’s autumn now.
