5.0 out of 5 stars SUNSHINE IN A BAG, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Child Of Lov (Audio CD)
Child Of Lov first came to my attention whilst receiving a new music trophy at the NME awards.The whole career trajectory from web hype to magazine shoots is so quick nowadays artists get awards BEFORE albums are even out on the shelves.
I suspect the excitement has simmered now with regards to Lov.,the chase is over,the albums out,we know what the dude looks like.Nevermind Child Of Lov is interesting with or without the hype.
Anyway back to the award,up he strolled,silly clothes,jacket draped arrogantly over the shoulder and in a completely contrived display of enigmatic hubris muttered "thankyou" and flounced off.All very Prince at BPI awards 84.
I have to mention musical references,its boring but neccersary.Two words D'Angelo and Prince.First track Call Me Up could've come straight off Voodoo.If you are going to have references Prince and D'Angelo are pretty,pretty cool.Its all filtered through Lovs style obviously which seems ridiculously fully formed for such a new artist.You get the feeling this guys been daydreaming about being a pop star for a little while.Just seems effortless.
Damon Albarn produces a few tracks as well,you can feel his presence.Say what you will about Albarn but the man is gifted.
My favourite track is the funky Heal,replete with Lovs falsetto....Give Me is a real bass stonker,Living The Circle and Go With The Wind are cool too.
This is a great debut album,ideal for summer,ready made for skinny jean wearing hipsters,indie kids,sad guys like me who will probably barbeque sausages in the garden with this album playing.
You can "chill"[if you must] on a beanbag while surrounded by "distinct" aromas.
Thank you.
