Weekly mp3 #40: J*Davey - No More
XLR8R offered this song up as part of their ongoing roll of MP3s.
A slow jam about fucking. "Leave some footprints on the walls" Nice shuffle to the beats, the singer sounds somewhere between Erykah Badu and the super-squeaky (but awesome) Yummy Bingham. The bass and accompanying synths are ridiculously syrupy. The breakdown rises above the usual pull-the-bass-out cliches by replacing the synth-soup with hummed and sung versions of the same... It's awesome! The track as a whole rises above the ridiculous number of J Dilla influenced beats by actually bothering to be a song, and a good one at that.
The American singer/producer duo J*Davey are apparently well-hyped in blog land. They released a couple of EPs last year and have at least 3 songs floating around for free.
