First Impressions: 'F*ck Love' Says Kameron Corvet

Thursday, February 16, 2012

As you know this past Tuesday was Valentine's Day, and while usually it has always been a time honored tradition for my singleton self to throw mental darts those lucky to get roses and sing Alanis Morisette's "You Oughta Know" at the top of my lungs, this year, a new attitude sort of flourished. I thus decided to pretty much enjoy love in other forms---especially my first love, music. So I took the day to sort of go music hunting, and the 'game' I got is worth more than a box of stale chocolates and false promises.

I don't know too much about Kameron Corvert, a singer/songwriter out of Atlanta, but I'm quite feeling his new freebie EP, lovingly entitled, F*ck Love that possesses an eclectic yet R&B flavored vibe that I wish a lot more cats would do. From the title you might be pressed to think that this dude has got to be bitter this side of Cee-Lo Green, but actually Kameron crafts the theme of love's forever mutations, because isn't that what "love" is---completely fabulous one minute and gut-wrenching the next?

What was of real interest on this set is the enetergetic slip n' slide "Legends Of The Fall", a groove-a-minute slice that makes great use of The Gap Band's "Outstanding" in it's backing. Another piece of interest is Kameron's rework of Terence Trent D'Arby's classic slow jam, "Sign Your Name", where Kameron twists the song into a completely different vibe as well as interjects some lyrics in French to give it a certain flair. As a D'Arby purist, I have to say this cover is très chic. For the lovers, the fighters, and most importantly those who are rolling in the deep, this freeEP is definitely something to download (see below) and not pass up.
