First Impressions: N.E.R.D.'s Bass Groover Is a Body Mover

Monday, April 26, 2010

From the looks of me, you wouldn't bet I was a bass guitar girl. Violin and kazoo you figured, but nope you're oh so so so wrong. For me, there is nothing better than a slapping and gritty bass in the background of a musical track. Give me that sound and I'm a happy camper. Thus, I latched onto N.E.R.D. snotty little groover, "Hot N' Fun", which fulfills the bass quota as this song completely rides on it. Pharrell basically hits it on the nail when he voices that the bass in this song is hypnotic, and add in Nelly Furtado's vocal tones (glad to hear her cameo on something other than a Timbaland track) and you've got a simmering pre-summer jam. As I'm one of few that loved the life out of the trio's 2008 Seeing Sounds effort, I'm quite prepped to hear what they have cooked up for Nothing, their next album which is to be released June 15th. Perfect timing, as N.E.R.D is definately great summer driving music. On that note, the repetitive "look at you, look at me" lyric in this must have been derived from that Old Spice commercial...
