Taking a break from the radio rips (for a day … Elbow on KEXP to come, I promise), I’m introducing you – well, actually myself – to Spank Rock. Seriously, all I know about Spank Rock I learned from Dodge and Ben.
I do know this track Sweet Talk is the hotness. It’s funk, it’s hip-hop, it’s club, it’s bass, it’s beats. If I could dance, I would. Plus, that stuttering guitar line reminds me of something James Brown’s JBs might have whipped up back in the day.
I particularly enjoy the Xxxchange Re-Edit … again, more funky guitar lines, horns and hand claps. I do love hand claps oh-so much. And this is what I love the most: A genre of music I normally might not dig (electronic/club/dance) pulls me in with elements of hip-hop and funk. How do you say no to that?
Pick up Spank Rock’s YoYoYoYoYo (that’s five of ’em if you’re scoring at home) at Big Dada.
