Delicate Steve, Durand Jones & The Indications, and The Japanese House
This week’s post is going to be incredibly brief for reasons that I will probably divulge at some point in the future. This is not the right time. It may not even be the right place. Still, I don’t know what to do at the moment, so here I am. If any of the artists somehow happen to land here after seeing something about themselves, I apologize for the brevity. I really enjoy your music and will try to spread more love your way in the future.
Delicate Steve: Till I Burn Up
Delicate Steve‘s Till I Burn Up reminds me of an 80s throwback album. Listen to the third track, Selfie of a Man, and tell me you don’t hear U2’s One Love. After that track, I couldn’t get my head out of the 80s.
Durand Jones & The Indications : American Love Call
Durand Jones & The Indications‘ American Love Call is exactly that – a love call back to a classic Motown sound. It takes me back to my early childhood when my parents were listening to AM radio. I can still smell the cigarette smoke in the car as I bounced around the front seat (without a seat belt). It was a much different time then.
The Japanese House: Good at Falling
The Japanese House‘s debut album Good at Falling started off annoying the hell out of me with its auto-tune. That quickly wore off as it settled into a Frou Frou/Imogen Heap feel. I quickly fell in love.
