Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-01-24This album from Los Angeles duo, Inara George(vocals) and Greg Kurstin(keyboards, programming, guitar, percussion), is just plain fun. I'd describe it as sixties-sounding pop with a modern twist. Some songs are cheeky such as "Diamond Dave" (which seems to be an ode to David Lee Roth?). "Polite Dance Song" is a little risque for daytime airplay, but any song that mentions naughty bits is alright with me! I'd have to point out "Love Letter to Japan" as a highlight. It is upbeat and danceable with its cheerleader backing vocals. "Witch" is another fave with its lounge-mod vibe. It sounds as if it would be right at home on an old James Bond movie soundtrack.
