We still haven’t finished digesting the hyperkinetic video for “Run” and now Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse have dropped yet another video and single.? I actually much prefer this song.? It’s got a great retro-Curtis Mayfield vibe to it.? That sort of 70’s blaxploitation soul, you know the kind of song you listen to while cruising through city streets in the wee hours of the morning, while contemplating the death of your best friend at the hands of the po-po.
That kind of sound.? That it’s being lip synched in the video by The Roots’s ?uestLove is gravy.? Actually ?uestLove goes on to say:
most idiots will probably be on some “scoff…this aint no CRAZY”–well you dumb ass parrots–this to me digs deeper. and what an apt title The Odd Couple: a very dense dark atmospheric moody templet just dramatic enough for the last great living and WORKING soul singer under 40 and the most creative and intuitive producer maniac music has seen in a sec.
thanks fellas for giving me the honor.
We thank you too
The Odd Couple hits streets on April 8 via Atlantic Records.
