Plantlife - The Last Song
"Like Sly, like Jimi, like Prince..." Plantlife even list their influences in the lyrics. Not to worry, following on from the excellence of previous single When She Smiles She Lights The Sky, The Last Song delivers on such a bold promise.
This is fabulous electro-funk which should continue to see those Outkast comparisons come thick and fast, Jack Splash's delivery a curious blend of falsetto and Dizzy Rascal style mania. It's a shame the various remixes seem rather redundant (with the exception perhaps of Skylab's guitar heavy take), but new track U Can Have It All is a slow, sexy number, and, quite possibly, perfect lovemaking music.
The Last Song is taken from The Return of Jack Splash, winner of Gilles Peterson's Album of the Year Award.
