Okay… while you are thinking about how much to open your bidding at, let’s talk about a little album that’ll help make that thinking & financial calculating that much more enjoyable, Foreign Born’s Person To Person…
Yep, I was able to finally shake off my Sunset Rubdown repeat listening/addiction/total freak out and listen to another album (sorry baby, we can take the CD out of the car now) and I’m so glad next up in the queue was this album! I didn’t read any write-ups on it, so I was completely unaware of what to expect….
What I found was a sonically full & diverse pop album loaded great melodies, sing-alongs, and even a hook or two to pull you along. Musically, I’d say it’s got a slight African vibe, not in a literal sense, not like this:
That mustache is hawtness. No… more like this:
…. hmmmmm, yeah, Talking Heads, I can see a bit of influence there!
Good friend grafista said, he heard somebody say, “this is what the white rabbits record should have been…” Considering how much I loved the first White Rabbits album and how incredibly “meh” I was for the second, it was an interesting comment, after listening, I got to say to that anonymous commenter, oh where ever ye may be….. I think I agree! I could also add, this is the next album that Vampire Weekend should make! Oh snaps! HA! I think by now, you see what I’m trying to say… Simply, it’s good times (as always)!
So give the first few tracks a go, then go get the rest! And I’ll see you guys later…
Right on time
It’s the same town…
