My kind of voice. Plenty under the pedal.

I was loving this until the horns came in.

This could be George Ezra. A nicely constructed song. The melody is great, but the production has turned it into something way too knowingly contrived. This is the bit where you're all gonna put your hands in the air and sway, now clap, now sing along... Hmmm. That said, that damn horn motif has lodged itself immovably. Ha.

Caught some joyful electronica last night. Jota doing dance. Arcimago, an Italian in a mask, doing gothic filmic stuff, and Merlin Tonto - keyboards and twiddle boxes, with humanising bass and drums - who I really loved, each song building relentlessly... Worked for me :-)

This is pretty much them live -

And this is an older four-track album -

Sounds like it could be used as music for a remake of Minder. Good voice.

Really solid tune, arrangement and an outstanding vocal performance. Having real horns playing some parts that breathe more would add so much --as is the static, obviously samples, part infuses a cheesiness that detracts a bit, IMO. And a trumpet solo would make the song stand out from so many similar similar Americana tunes.

I'm not quite following Paul into electro nirvana on the Merlin Tonto but liking it. On Baotuo the bass is moving & grooving which makes a huge difference.

It's a phase I'm going through ;-)
