Johnny Foreigner - Certain Songs Are Cursed
I love this band so much, and here are four more reasons why. The first two songs (”What Drummers Get” and “Twin Sisterzz”) operate in JF’s primary mode: high energy, with yelpy vocals, song sections colliding into each other like bumper cars, with surprisingly compelling hooks (and sometimes quiet, pretty bits, too, lurking amid the clatter). “Johnny Foreigner Vs. You” is arranged almost completely for piano and voice; “Certain Songs” is an acoustic guitar tune with a quietly intense vocal and a smidge of found sound. It’s exciting to hear the mounting evidence that Johnny Foreigner can attack on more fronts than was initially obvious.
