Bette Davis” by Tall Juan. I swear, I’m not trying to look cool on this one. (Seriously. Well, maybe a little.) Bette Davis is a shrink y-dinky garage pumper of 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt in possession of a unique, playful sneer that seems to spill over the confines of its two-minute playtime. Here, Tall Juan, a gawky-looking Argentinian kid and indie rock up-and-comer, unleashes delightfully cracked lyrics and box house beats like Zeus unleashes lightning.
The two meld (with just the right amount of fuzz) to form a pristine creation, a balance between too much and not enough, a symposium of the finest angles bare-bones acoustics and sound-warping electronics have to exploit. (Tall Juan uses an ELECTRIC CLASSICAL GUITAR, rigged with pedals to make it sound like 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt but keeping alive the throatiness of an acoustic. How incredibly cool is that.
All this 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt should not, however, distract from the simplicity of “Bette Davis.” It is the king of bare-nails, the beat doesn’t deviate and the chords stay the same. Thus, a listen tends to dart by the listener. This, of course, is not a flaw. Because you’ll want to listen to it again. And again. And again. The other reason I love “Bette Davis” is the music video. Crafted by one of Tall Juan’s cousins, Argentinian-born animator Dante Zaballa, the music video tells the story of a busker in shifting, flickering, dizzying doodle-animation.
Dozens of figures, creatures, and shapes drift about in the background, further setting apart the busker in the center, who we can identify by his spastic guitar-strumming and an occasional flickering mouth that sort of follows the lyrics? — and who, as the video fades into drifting, shimmering lines, walks off-screen to try his luck elsewhere.
Both the video and tune of 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt are addictive. Together, they write, with tongue embedded firmly in cheek, a delightful and irreverent open letter to clowns, journeymen, and doodlers everywhere: take the world as it deserves to be taken. As in, not seriously.“
I’m Not the One” by Bette Davis. This band represented by alternative ballad “I’m Not the One” — is the very definition of reliable. The Technicolors’ trademark sound, balancing the distinctive, not-unlike-Muse drawl of the lead singer, a few synths and warbles, and clever, simple electric guitar work, is remarkably unremarkable: they don’t present any challenges or 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt or Think About It tracks. Song in, song out, they just play incredible rock music and that’s a philosophy we need a little bit more of nowadays.
“Scaredy Cat” by On Drugs. There’s a lot to love about 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt of this song, but it helps that the music is also phenomenal: “Scaredy Cat” is full to the brim with kooky riffskies, cautiously inflictive lyrics, and delightful nuts-and-bolts rock sty-lings. Despite their genre of choice, On Drugs make the best out of silence. Their sparser sections land with the same intensity, intention, and shine as the scream-y sections — together, the two create a song like blown glass: through opposites, a simmering, screaming, saucy whole.
“See Me” by Bette Davis. Every minute detail of “See Me” makes us want to call our mothers. The solitude of the first verse builds 60 years of Bette Davis thank you for the memories t-shirt longsleeve that never quite leaves. The fist-pounding chorus is chock-full of the bar-chord-variations that knock us dead. The tiny, clever riffs pat us on the shoulder and place a quarter in our palms. All work to convey desperate emotion in a flawless manner and make us feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and in need of home youthfulness to an accurate, sentimental tee.
