Little Red is Katy B’s second studio album. Everyone says an artist’s second album is always their hardest and after the massive success of “On a Mission” (Her Debut album) this was going to be a massive test for her. I suspect it especially hard for her because she cannot just go out clubbing or jam in subway at 3am and just act her age and gain the experiences that inspire music.
Is it any good?
It’s ok, don’t get me wrong it’s well produced and had lots of decent music on there. But it has what I call advert music on there there are quite a few songs that I would class as advert music which as soon as I hear I think they will be used in an advert or movie sound track.
It’s not a bad thing, advert music is great for making sales but it also was the thing that made me remove it from my ipod within a month. I think this will appeal to the people in her age group but not so much to the ones outside that.
It’s quite disappointing, because I do like Katy B and I think she’s a good singer. I do wish she put the “Got Paid” tune from her free EP on the album, I think this is a good tune, I think it would have given it an extra dimension. EP available from http://www.katybofficial.com.
The Flagship Tune that has been smashed on the Radio is the Aaliyah track which is great but I won’t add that to the vote that would make it too easy.
Should you go buy the album? Maybe? My advice is spotify it first then make your decision. On the other hand, if you haven’t got “On a Mission” yet then go get it… now!!!!
The first flashback friday after a long time has to be an important one. Strictly speaking it’s probably not a “flashback” as such but it’s more than a year old now so I’m probably just getting away with it!
Lenzman is currently my new gym buddy (yeah I’m a gym guy now but we’ll talk about that more later), he is a D&B Dj that has produced a few mixes that keep me motivated when my body feels like falling to bits in the gym.
No vote this time as it’ll be a bit unfair for me to ask you to listen to 3 hours of music before voting, but what I will ask is download them and put them on your exercise device, weather it be riding a bike, running, pushing weights or powerwalking Lenzman will be there for you.
I know you may think is Drum and Bass really for me?
But it’s liquid Drum and Bass and you never know you just might like it, what’s the worst that can happen?
