the battle lines are drawn…

 

It’s only fair that if I’m going to mention the brilliance of Frankmusik that I also continue waxing poetic about Miss Elly Jackson aka La Roux, the current queen of analogue dance pop. The new single Bulletproof continues the roll she’s been on and sets up a very interesting chart battle between Elly and Mr. Frank. Her self-titled debut drops in June and wouldn’t you know it? So does Frankmusik’s… Now I’m not one to fan the flames of controversy for controversy’s sake…oh who am I kidding? Yes I am. Anyway it should be fun to see who outsells whom each act’s debut albums finally see the light of the day.  

As for Bulletproof itself? Can’t beat a midtempo stomper to get you dancing up as the summer draws nearer. This may be the most accessible and poppiest of the three singles released thus far. Although I’m still quite partial to Quicksand, Bulletproof is nothing to sneeze at and I look forward to hearing it spun at the local indie disco so I can impersonate someone who can dance with rhythm. Enjoy and comments are most welcome!

the hits just keep on coming…

Ever since we met we’ve never been too clear

All our insecurities turn up in all our fears

And how we’ve tried to make our problems disappear

Never searchin’ hard enough to find only more tears”

 

How much do I love Frankmusik? Words simply can’t describe… His debut record Complete Me  due out in June is going to be a electro -pop massacre. We’ve spoiled to this point with simple deviant singles such as Three Little Words & In Step and now we’ve got Better Off As Two. What I tend to appreciate about Vincent Frank is he definitely appears to understand the importance of presentation. The promotional films are just as fun, innovative and spectacular as the songs themselves and the video for BOAT is no different. In a year where we’ve already been treated to some classic singles, It’s hard to say that anyone has gotten off to the right foot moreso than Frankmusik…
