As much as I love the current electronic-oriented phase in music, sometimes you need a break. Sometimes you need some real instrumentation driving the song along, and I don’t mean just guitars/basses. No, I’m talking about some good old driving horns. I guess you could say it’s ‘Just My Type’ of sound.
Saint Motel is back after their debut full-length album last year, Voyeur, in a big way with a track that sounds like a blast from the past. Right from the get-go you can tell ‘My Type’ is going to have your toe tapping as a single horn starts accompanied by some clapping on beats 2 and 4. Then after four measures the real fun starts as the rest of the band comes in; including additional horns, drum set, guitars, keyboard, and I think I even hear a xylophone? And they’re not even done yet! Then the vocals come in and by the time the chorus hits the sound becomes one solid groove machine. Definite props to them for bringing a smile to my face this evening and I hope their new material is in a similar fashion. See if the song is your type below, and you can even download it for free!
