Fetching always more music...
Pop / Alternative Rock

Paul Simon


(1986, Warner Bross) USA, New Jersey

Cover de Paul Simon - Graceland

I surprize myself in reviewing Paul Simon, what made me rename the Alternative Rock category in Pop / Rock Alternative.

I was in an American Apparel shop in Richmond when I listened You can call me Al in the speaker. I was moved by the groovy bass run by Bakithi Kumalo. I was sure that I was listening to a new Vampire Weekend’s song.
Then I looked at home on the internet and I found this album from 1986, “Graceland” which probably inspired the Vampires. Same kind of vocals, rythms and bass lines. 

After a deceiving first song, let’s listen to Graceland with this funny melody on guitar which makes you dance and this “parental advisory” lyrics :

There is a girl in New York City,
Who calls herself the human trampoline

Some other songs follow the same concept like Crazy Love, Volume II. You’ll find some Grindcore-high-speed tempos in Gumboots and let’s end this mythic album with the amazing All around the World or the Myth of Fingerprints.
