Trackademicks & 1-OAK - Lovelorn: 2 Player Co-Op (FIRST LISTEN)Mon, Dec 10, 2012
The collection takes 80s pop/indie songs and updates them, adding a modern twist while keeping it retro. â€ťHow Soon Is Nowâ€ť grooves up the rock-infused The Smithâ€™s original. The next three tracks infuses the music of the era of Jeri Curls and Jordache jeans with a contemporary flair. â€śSomeone Greatâ€ť souls-up LCD Soundsystemâ€™s original. 1-OAK's vocal delivery is reminiscent of Michael Jackson circa 1979 on the Wham! cover â€śNothing Looks the Same,â€ť while the compilationâ€™s beatsmith Trackademicks enters with a verse. â€śGoodbye Girlâ€ť tackles the Go West ballad, and the package concludes with â€śLovecats,â€ť a funky rendition of The Cureâ€™s popular tune. The hookâ€™s infectious â€śda, da, daâ€™sâ€ť will linger in your head for the rest of the day.
