“Turn Me Up” – Twin Shadow
I’ve listened to a little of Twin Shadow’s music over the years. There’s a growing buzz for his next album, which will come out in March. Based on this performance on Letterman, and a quick listen to the three tracks available on Rdio, I’m really looking forward to it, too.
I think it is odd, though, that so many people have said this song makes them think of Prince. It doesn’t sound anything like a Prince song to me. Just because a black man mixes R&B and rock and plays some nasty guitar does not mean you have to compare him to Prince.
