Golly, it's been awhile. I moved (and will be moving again soon) so that set me back. Oh well. Everything should be semi back in business, so enjoy this and future posts!
MP3: Sam Sparro - Black & Gold
"Black & Gold", the title track from Sam Sparro's upcoming mini-lp/ep, is by far the best song I've heard this year. A true banger, it glides by your Justice's or Simian Mobile Disco's (don't get me wrong, I dig on both) by using an infectious beat, top notch production, clever lyrics and some of the best singing you'll hear, genre be damned. Sparro is a fine example of great music and his touch seems to be magical, no doubt you'll be hearing these songs and his name very, very soon. I'd suggest downloading this jam asap so you can sing it all summer and be ahead of the curve.
This release is coming from Modus Vivendi Music, but no word on when. Keep an eye on their website as much as you can, but in the meantime you can stream the whole thing at Sam Sparro's website.
