Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DESMOND AND THE TUTUS

Tuckshop

2009-04-06

This debut album from this South African outfit rocks! All the songs here feature amusing lyrics and an energetic pace that one can't help but at least tap a foot (or two) to. Every song's a winner, but the best one is "Good and Guilty" with its danceable beat, rhythm guitar and fun vocals. Another one in the same vein is "German Modern". Both songs feature tongue-in-cheek lyrics, but other funny ones are "Crazy Rebel". ("You can finish a double cheese and bacon burger all by yourself...you my friend are a crazy rebel.") I'll bet many people could relate to the lyrics of "High Five". ("I'm excited to see you, but your high fives are far too hard.") This album is just plain, danceable fun. Enjoy!
