The latest from Japandroids is not to my usual taste but I give credit when it’s due and this track is near perfect.
A lyricist as abstract as Queens, New York native Homeboy Sandman needs video visual treatment that is just as creative. The Miracle is taken from Sandman’s latest EP titled Subject Matter and was directed by Steve Smith. It’s been awhile since a video has had the capability to capture my attention, let alone to be put on replay, and this one did just that. The perfect example of a simple concept heightened by exciting (and flat out trippy) visuals.
This is the perfect example of how simple lyrics make for a great track. After listening to this for literally 40 seconds I knew all the words and for someone who loves the sound of their own voice that spells for the perfect song.
The title here really does say it all.
For the last few months, Harlem emcee Azealia Banks has been hustling to make a name for herself with countless performances from Paris to Japan. Through a hectic schedule she’s still managed to release the Diplo produced Fuck Up the Fun today through her Twitter account. No word on where the heavy thumping single will end up but if it’s any indication of what her album will sound like, then I’m intrigued. Banks’ debut Broke With Expensive Taste will be out sometime this year.
