MUSIC: My Finger Is On The Button

0 comments suggest edit

If you’re a fan of good music (I mean objectively, not subjectively) I plan to recommend a few songs here and there in this blog. Never mind the fact that if you end up purchasing the songs via my site, I get paid. I give you my word, a vow, that I will never lead you musically astray. I may lead you astray in other ways, but not in music.

Having said that, let me introduce you to this new single by The Chemical Brothers.

I’m a big fan of Metropolis on KCRW. If you live in the Los Angeles area and are a fan of good music then you’re probably familiar with this radio show hosted by Jason Bentley. It’s a great place for discovering new music as Jason really does have his finger on the pulse of electronica and world music.

It’s on this show that I first heard the song Galvanize, which contains the catchy hook that is the subject of this post, “My finger is on the button”. I purchased it on Galvanize today and am totally digging the violin action mixed in with the funky beats. The image on the left is a deep link into the iTunes music store. If you’re not an iTunes user, you can click on the link.

[Listening to: Galvanize - The Chemical Brothers - Push the Button (6:33)]

    KCRW has been playing this catchy tune at least once per hour for the past 2 months :). The east indian string section is great. Anyway glad you like it, Garth Trinidad has a great show too...

    Ha ha... Most of my KCRW listening is NPR in the morning. It's only when I have to drive somewhere in the evening that I get to enjoy Metropolis. So I haven't heard it as much as everyone else has I suppose.

    I've heard this song every day for the past month. And I agree. It totally sucks. Especially the "Jaws" string line which IMHO runs on for far too long turning a classic tool for musical suspense into something just fucked up and boring. Secondly, it couldn't be more predictable from a musical perspective.
