Random 10 for Jan. 18, 2008
1. Jim Noir, “I Me You.” A Mancunian with sharp pop skills, Jim Noir made a minor splash with the direct melodies on 2006′s “Tower of Love (My Dad).” I’m particularly a fan of “Key of C,” a bright little synth bauble that might have made a great Howard Jones song in 1983 if only Noir infused it with a little more fromage. Super Furry Animals fans, inquire within. And while we’re at it…
5. Chromeo, “Tenderoni.” Remarkably faithful replication of early ’80s Vocoder-drenched electro-soul in the vein of Midnight Star (“Freak-A-Zoid”) from a couple of Montreal laughing boys named Dave One and Pee Thug. And no, this isn’t an Andy Samberg joke.
6. Shivaree, “Bossa Nova.”
7. Sam Prekop, “Something.”
8. Phoenix, “Long Distance Call.”
9. CSS, “Off the Hook.”
10. Rilo Kiley, “Dreamworld.” Speaking of homages, “Dreamworld” could be an ultra-plush leftover from Fleetwood Mac’s “Tango In the Night” — Rilo Kiley is even signed to Warner Bros. these days. All they need to do is start hanging out in Topanga Canyon a lot and develop serious, 1970s-style addictions. This is one of Blake Sennett’s lead tracks from “Under the Blacklight,” an album that did not get the kind of love it probably deserved last year.
