HOAX – Moon Moon Baby – Single Review

The US nu-soul quintet HOAX revealed a new track yesterday.

HOAX

Sometimes something sweet with a cup of coffee feels like the right thing to do and Moon Moon Baby, the new single by HOAX is an appropriate accompaniment as a soft slice of fudge on the side.

Not attempting to tear down the walls, HOAX, nonetheless introduce a sense of expanding and compressing open coils to a bedrock of soul to deliver music which, while sugary, is not cloying and although not something that will find its way to my everyday playlist, Moon Moon Baby is a satiation for moments when a sweet-tooth craving strikes.

A couple of songs from the album were revealed late last month (available on bandcamp) as the AA side single Cha Cha Boom / Let You Go, my pick of which is Cha Cha Boom with its laid-back hip sashaying rhythm.

Freaks Of The Sea – Hypocrite – Single Review

Freaks Of The Sea is a sardonic-pop duo from the USA.

Freaks Of The Sea

Within the past ten hours their latest track has surfaced, the sardonically named Hypocrite, which finds a lyrical barrage railing against the ‘pop’. A song that can’t but help raise a smile for the assuredness and deftness of foot in taking a step outside their own boundaries to use those ‘four chords’ and deliver a track that is as ‘capable’ as anything in the mainstream, whilst simultaneously tearing holes in itself for its own absurdity.

In due course I will return to Freaks Of The Sea when they resolve to their more natural territory of luxurious nu-soul.
