iTunes Single of the Week Review #3

8 Sep

Well you’ve got to hand it to iTunes: they certainly do put out a wide range of music. In the last few weeks we’ve had soul and indie, and now this, a swinging 50s-inspired song from Imelda May, she of the amazing quiff. Her album “Mayhem” is released in October and considering how long she’s been hanging around doing her retro thing for so long I was surprised to see how little of it she’d actually released. “Sneaky Freak” is a great burst of fast-paced swing that’s guaranteed to break up the monotony of all that 80s-inspired electro-pop we’re becoming so used to. Even the production on the downloadable version of this track has that 50s, almost Elvis-inspired feel to it. Are you sure we’re not in a time warp and I’m not about to play the washboard? Doesn’t matter. When it’s this good, who’s complaining?
