They’re great. Well, as the kids say-these tracks are slammin and/or bumpin. Plain and simple. Both these tracks I’ve heard during the last 2 weeks or so over at Jason’s show on KCRW. And You know, there was a real concern that Gnarls would suffer from a “sophomore slump” in my mind. But in my HEART I knew that Danger Mouse would keep the quality up (that’s a reference to today being Valentine’s Day). Danger Mouse is easily the strongest producer to hit the scene since the Neptunes. And this new song that’s hit the airwaves, Run, is short but strong. So I don’t think they’ve officially released a video yet, but I was able to get the tune from Youtube for you to check out. (UPdate it’s many weeks later and the official Gnarls Barkley Run Video is here now).
And the new Dan Le Sac is called Thou Shalt Always Kill. It’s one of those catchy songs with the sort of spoken word approach to vocals WHILE talking about music industry skewed stuff. It’s sort of like the old Bob Dylan song, or the recent LCD Soundsystem track. I think Green Velvet did something in this vein too. Anyway this song DOES have a video and it’s pretty neat.
