Something old, new, borrowed but nothing particularly blue this time.
Gypsy & The Cat: Jona Vark
Yet another Australian duo who have had more than an occasional listen to Fleetwood Mac’s Greatest Hits. Yes, you can say ‘Empire Of The Sun’ if you wish. One to watch for 2011.
The Roots feat. Jim James: Dear God 2.0
Thoughtful rap collective take on unlikely opening track from folk supergroup Monsters of Rock. They bring MoF member Jim James (or Yim Yames) along for the hook. Of course it works.
The Gap Band: You Dropped A Bomb On Me (DJ Kue Remix)
The chunkiest offering from 70s/80s Oops Upside Your Head hitmakers gets chunkified even more. Most pleasing in a clubular context, one imagines.
