I LOVE PENGUIN PRISON.
Their latest single “The Worse It Gets” is pure pop and I’m hearing so many things that appeal to me right now.
The track starts off with a rhythm and piano stabs very reminscent of Thibaut Berland’s style of funk (which is derivative of many other things –another story). You hear the chorus? You know what that is? That is SUMMER. It’s fucking here.
Holy shit. Starsmith does this track RIGHT. Opens with a minimal approach and ever so gradually builds on the layers. The guitar picking reminds me of Phoenix, and there are other lovely little licks of guitar that hark back to the days of Alan Braxe, Fred Falke and friends. Again, these are just a few things that make this remix amazing. Let me reiterate: Summer, is, here.
ps: check my TUMBLMANIA lately? shit’s kind of poppin over there.
