Jump Clubb “The Love of No Dance” – Album Review

7 10 2009

jumpclubb_albumcoverThere’s been a lot of hype about Jump Clubb (Anonymous Band From Beverly Hills). I’m not quite sure who they are but I do know that I really enjoy the beats they’ve been spittin’ out. Their debut album “The Love of No Dance” dropped yesterday, Oct. 6, 2009 and its all sorts of good. Pushing seven tracks of sweet electro sounds and seductive lo-fi vocals, “The Love of No Dance” boasts a mere 20 minutes of music. With an album so brief yet alluring, why not review the whole damn thing track for track:

1. Green Light – This track has beats that resonate from the mid 90’s rave stylings. Although a bit more refined and echoing with sexy, subtle male vocals, there’s a very provocative essence to “Green Light.”

2. A Frozen Hug – By far one of my favorite songs on the album. Carrying a dreamy, yet tribalesque beat, this vivacious dance number will get your body moving to the lush sounds and whispering vocals doused in this track.

3. The Love of No Dance – With galactic bursts of sound riddling the background with ambient life, title track “The Love of No Dance” is very mellow, very chill, and very sexy.

4. Please Excuse Us – I have no idea who they’re sampling at the intro of this track, but he sounds very big and scary. That deep dark voice quickly looses all its shake appeal once the lovely strings and melodic beats come into play.

5. Lets Crash This Party – Breaking into a groovy jam of beats and elegant woodwinds, “Lets Crash This Party” carries the loveliest of instrumentation on the entire album. At one point it reminded me of ancient Incan flute music. It was very delicate and organic, but oh-so-hot! Another favorite of mine.

6. I’d Rather Be Played – This is probably the only track where the soft and mysterious vocals actually show any emotion or changing energy. The fuzzy words start slow and then climax into a demanding plea to “dance with me tonight,” while an almost-annoying robotic chorus chimes in with their two cents.

7. Spraypaint – Closing up their debut LP with a calm track rolling with trance beats, ambient synths and light drums, “Spraypaint” will leave you craving more of that mysterious Jump Clubb sound.

So who the fuck are these peeps? Although their band goes by the name of Jump Clubb (Anonymous Band From Beverly Hills), I do hear some references to Brooklyn in “Spraypaint.” Hmm …

Stay tuned for an interview with Jump Clubb and be sure to pick up their debut LP “The Love of No Dance” here. It’s short and sweet and something your gonna wanna Jump on.

Jump Clubb (Anonymous Band From Beverly Hills)

11 09 2009

I’m definitely not a fan of over-privileged kids born with a golden spoon in their mouths who try to become successful (respected) musicians. It’s like Paris Hilton trying to make a name for herself as a pop singer when in reality, all she has to show for is her rich blood and D-grade internet porn.

Needless to say, I’m sure (I know) there are those musicians who came from wealthy backgrounds and are truly pursing their passion for music because it comes straight from their hearts―not some greedy need for fame or defiance against mummy and daddy.

When I first received the press release for “Jump Clubb (Anonymous Band From Beverly Hills),” I immediately deleted it on the basis they were from Beverly Hills. Second time around I opened it and checked out their music. After listening to their track “A Frozen Hug,” I instantly dugg their sweet electro sound. It has that indie electro feel accented by both disco beats and an exotic tribal flavor. Download it for yourself here.

The press release also said a few good things about them considering they’re musicians from “Beverly Hills.”

Hailing from a town that is literally built on celebrity and the need to be noticed, Jump Clubb makes it a point they want nothing to do with the fame that surrounds them on a daily basis … While others are constantly focused on their public image and measuring their talent in TMZ appearances, Jump Clubb makes music … They are musicians whose only goal is to release music …

Their debut album “The Love Of No Dance” drops Oct. 6. Check back for the review.
