Basement Jaxx's The Singles
Purchased Basement Jaxx's The Singles double-CD.
Amazon.com reports it as an 'import', but it were bein' released through regular channels here in Canada. I bought this on th' strength o' the Pitchfork review of the album, an' mostly fer th' second disc o' B-sides an' remixes (but also fer "Oh My Gosh", the video of which you can view online), since I have all o' Basement Jaxx's albums already, on a dead man's chest! They make this really funky, slightly off-kilter house music sometimes with vocals. (A lot o' their songs be good runnin' music, at least fer me.) The Pitchfork review says thar were bein' a DVD with th' group's videos, but since I paid about-regular-price fer a double CD, not gettin' it in th' package isn't that big o' a deal. The Pitchfork reviewer is right: their B-sides beat most o' house's A-sides. It's definitely good 'dancin' alone in me apartment' music, though just like cooking, dancin' is best done with someone, Ya swabbie, with a chest full of booty! Note that this album is not available on iTunes Music Service Canada, nor be any other o' Basement Jaxx's tracks.
