Song of the Day 8/6/08: Pop Levi - Never Never Love
Like The Unicorns or Hot Chip, Pop Levi can write pop songs that will make you forget the time you thought "pop" was a filthy word. Under his command, pop isn't an onslaught of structured, overdriven guitars and a one-track drumline - it's got hiccups and staccato breaths between the drums, and a guitar that explodes and then melts away like fireworks. Speaking of Hot Chip, think Levi's given them a listen lately? That hook in the intro, with the little fret sweep and stutter step at the end of each bar, sounds like a keen extension of the electro-pop style. If the music's this good, they're allowed to share it.
