mmm paranoia flavored tea

Why yes, that is the Talking Heads you’re hearing aped on James Murphy’s “One Touch” off his upcoming juggernaut This Is Happening. Doesn’t really matter though, does it? Murphy’s Byrne-esque monotone and quasi political lyrics (“People who need people to the back of the bus”) slide effortlessly over polyrhythmic percussion and tense competing synths to create a seriously slick tune. Won’t tell you much more than this, but here’s a thought: on an album filled with jams that threaten to rule your summer, this here’s the front-runner.

One Touch is Never Enough

Incredible song - the thumping synth beat initially reminded me of Get Innocuous, but it's a lot more frantic and skitzophrenic. Terrific album by the way, Pow Pow is another favourite of mine.
