J. Cole J. Cole… Considerably richer than yow

The rest of this week’s singles: J. Cole, TLC, Katie Melua, OMD and more!

Published on September 19th, 2013 | Jonny Abrams

What can we say about the rest of this week’s singles that hasn’t been said already?

Well…for starters, they’re the rest of this week’s singles. Not the best of this week’s singles, or the worst of this week’s singles.

Just the rest.

Give it a rest? Yeah, okay.

Cass McCombs – “There Can Only Be One”

Pleasant as a pleasant drink in between doing pleasant things on a pleasant summer’s day.

Pleasant, basically.

Cut Copy – “Free Your Mind”

Screamdelicalicious! Perhaps a little too much, though. As a throwback to acid house, it feels more like flat-out homage than, say, Jagwar Ma, who actually deign to mix theirs up a bit with other features.

It’s nice stuff, just devoid of surprises.

J. Cole feat. TLC – “Crooked Smile”

Attention everyone: J. Cole is still really, really rich.

We long for the J. Cole single with a chorus that goes something like “Blew all my money in a casino, now I can’t even afford a copy of The Beano”. Ache for it.

As long as he continues to be worshipped arbitrarily by footballers, that scenario is likely to remain unforthcoming. More’s the pity, as there’s little to commend this for other than the presence of whatever’s left of TLC.

Now there was a pop act you could hang your hat on.

What do you think of it, Rocksucker tech guru Tom?

Tom: That’s a good lyric, “Like the sun, I found my way round”. Good knowledge of physics. Catchy tune.

Rocksucker says: Two Quails out of Five!

Katie Melua – “I Will Be There”

Melua doesn’t start singing until 1.24, and we’re tempted to describe this as the armistice section. However, the verse is actually quite beguiling…a shame then that it spills into a damp squib of a ‘lighters in the air’ chorus.

We dare say it doesn’t necessitate a full orchestra.

Tom: It’s nice.

It’s ****ing Pet Sounds compared to the new Jessie J single.

Rocksucker says: Two and a Half Quails!

Martin Rossiter – “No One Left to Blame”

Welcome back, Mr Gene! Did he ever really go away? Genuine question, that…we weren’t paying attention.

Pleasingly lyrical piano-based melodrama, it is. Knocks spots off the new Elton John single, not that that should necessarily be an immediately arrived-at comparison.

Rocksucker says: Three Quails out of Five!

OMD – “Night Café”

Planning on making a comeback with tunes clearly inferior to those of your heyday?

Don’t bother.

Tom: Didn’t OMD do “How Bizarre”?


Rocksucker says: Two and a Half Quails!

PewDiePie & The Gregory Brothers – “Jabba the Hutt”


Hmmm. The line “Should I order the game online? / No, I’ll drive to the ****ing game” has to be worth a quail or so.

It’s diverting, we’ll give it that.

Tom: This is cool! Bit silly though.

Portland – “Deezy Daisy”

Faintly dull ’80s pastiche.
