A lot of love for TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS here at Brand Nu HQ, not that you’d know it from the amount of times I get ‘extinct’ and ‘enormous’ the wrong way round, not to mention the amount of times I spell dinosaurs dinosaws. My lame SPG misleads thee, love his work and latest track ‘Your Love’ is no different, timeless House music made in twenty twelve that could have been made in eighty nine, and that’s a compliment.
Fuck I’ve started talking about things being timeless again.
Pop tune (in a kinda timel…) of the week so far is a track called ‘Frivolous Life’ by a band called YES YOU, maybe you’ll show me up with knowledge of an extensive back catalogue but I’d never heard of YES YOU before and I’m impressed. The infectiousness of this reminds me (‘reminds’, I’m not saying it is as good) of when I first heard Pumped Up Kicks introducing me to an unknown band called Foster The Something, things turned out ok for them I think.
Been meaning to shout out ‘New York’ by ANGEL HAZE for a while. The beat is so simple it must be driving producers around the world mad with ‘why didn’t I come up with that-it is’, it’s a killer, totally infectious and the venom with which she raps adds another level to it. The sort of track that makes the word ‘skanking’ make sense.
