Yeah. Glad I'm not the only one who likes "Gosh." That was the big track from that album, and I think the lead single. I had only previously heard his stuff with Gil Scott Heron, and thought it was OK, and I liked "Gosh" so I got In Colour and gave it a good honest go. But... yeah, pretty freaking mediocre all in all.
Still, that song is now on my ever-growing electro playlist. I am decidedly NOT a Jamie xx fan, but that song captures something.
There are a few electronic artists like that. Flume is another one. Mostly just EDM trash, but his first album had some definite bonkers tracks on it.
Heck, I even like that Calvin Harris song with Frank Ocean. What's that one called? Slide? I think so. Yeah... not good music, not a good artist (Calvin Harris that is) but that's a good song.
I don't think I have much of a point here, other than that even shitty artists can have good songs, or strike a chord, or stumble upon something dope. I actually kind of hate everything Jamie xx stands for and his "rock" music is just tepid boring trash, but "Gosh" rules.
