Song of the Day 4/15/09: The Juan MacLean - One Day
This is The Juan MacLean's second full length album, and apart from remixes, singles and ep's, it's the Juan MacLean's proper follow up to 2005's Less Than Human. In the liner notes of the new—just released in stores yesterday—the Juan MacLean album, The Future Will Come, Juan MacLean comments on whether he considers his project to be a solo or band effort. His answer is that The Juan MacLean is far greater than him. While the evidence supporting that belief is scattered throughout the album, the collaboration on "One Day" is a definite high point. With vocals provided by long time Juan MacLean-er, Nancy Whang, and some nice backing vocals from Alex Frankel, those funky DFA bass-lines, synth-beats and cheesy (in a drive you crazy good way) 70's soul vocals from MacLean himself will have your ass dancing around like you would to a Kylie Minogue video (don't even try to deny it). Okay fine, perhaps Human League would be a more appropriate point of reference. Either way, you should definitely get the gist by now.
