I am sorry to say that the advent of my love affair with (the music of) LP came during The Age Of No Blogging, so I have yet to gush about one of my favorite artists of the past couple years on this forum. As this article states right off the bat, however, “LP isn’t yet a household name”. This is an utter tragedy, so late to the party as I am, I still feel compelled to do my part.

Neat Tracks / NONONO “Pumpin’ Blood”

NONONO-960x745

I have to admit, I don’t understand a lot of “popular” dance music. It’s repetitive and doesn’t go anywhere, and the vocals are frequently one-note.  There is no emotion, let alone an emotional arc to a song. Usually it’s the songs that I know and can sing along to that are my favorite to dance to, but every so often a curveball lands in my inbox.

Okay so, it’s possible that “Pumpin’ Blood” doesn’t really count as an electronic/dance song in the same way that “Clarity” or  “Titanium” does, and NONONO is not grouped in the same category as David Guetta but man, that song is my jam.

I can’t get enough of the combo of synth, whistles, percussion and (I think?) acoustic guitar, putting NONONO pretty squarely in the realm of electro pop/rock.  Not only am I compelled to jump out of my seat, a huge smile is on my face every time I hit repeat. It is exuberant and driving at the same time, and thankfully the rest of the EP doesn’t disappoint.
