Song Stuck In My Head: Camille Jones - The Streets
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
My knowledge about the Danish music scene is limited, aside from the likes of Oh Land, Nabiha, and Alphabeat, which have one time or another gotten a spotlight on this blog. Now on my radar is Camille Jones, who is best known for 2004's electronica staple, "The Creeps",with this meaty and beaty single, "The Streets".
Though most of this year's Did I Say I Love You is to the jam-packed to the wall with pulse pounding electronica, "The Streets" takes a elegant deep House approach making it the lone highlight. I'm probably not properly experiencing DISILY--such as I need to be in a club and high out my mind for it---but "The Streets" has crept up on my already drafted Best of '11 list because it's just that excellent. Jones inserts a bit of soul in this with her vocal tone, so all you die-hard soul heads who thought Kelis was delirious for combining club with soul on Flesh Tone (she wasn't), "The Streets" balances things out to where it's not a complete genre state of shock---but still a whole lot of fun.
Ease onto these streets.
