50 Word Single Reviews
Fight Like Apes – Tie Me Up With Jackets
I would not be surprised to see this one at the top of the chart. Smart lyrics and some great hooks make this is a choppy, yet vibrant song. This Irish band sounds like a combination of American college rock and English indie rock. TMUWJ might be a new classic.
Dan Le Sac v Scroobius Pip feat Posdnuos – Thou Shall Always Kill
Dan le Sac and Scroobius Pip and De La Soul, what a great mix. The song has been changed with new added lyrics. Maybe not as great as the ‘original’ but still a 9 out of 10. Best song ever recorded that mentions Mitch Hedberg, George Carlin and James Stewart.
The Walkmen – In The New Year
Organ/synth heavy song with one awesome sounding reverb guitar on which the song is built.. The video is as good as the song if not better, using old footage of the Nosferatu movie of the 1922’s, a classic German horror movie. This song will surely rise in the coming weeks.
Marmaduke Duke – Kid Gloves
There is something about animated videos that makes a song better than it actually is. Not that ‘Kid Gloves’ is not worth listening to, but the video is stunningly beautiful. Singer is also in Biffy Clyro, but I think Marmaduke Duke is the more interesting music venture he has undertaken.
