Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday. I really don't have a good excuse. But, I'll make up for it today with what is bound to be one of the summer's jolliest singles. Fibes, Of Fibes! are capable of creating some damn good pop (see Can't Be So or Get Up), and their singles are always top-notch. They have an instantly recognizable sound, which is best displayed on their funky, uptempo tracks. Love Child may just be the best single they've put out yet. The chorus ratchets catchiness up to a new level, followed by a boisterous marching band hook that places this track among the classics of 2009. The band have called it a "bastard anthem." I wonder if the lyrics are at all autobiographical? I have very high hopes for their upcoming album (curiously titled 1987). It sounds like they've been working with some great producers. I hope that Love Child is the template for the record's sound, because I think these guys are on the cusp of creating one stupendous album.
In unrelated news, who the hell is voting for Danny Gokey on American Idol?!?!? What do we have to do to get him voted off? And in what alternate universe was Adam in the bottom three?
