RNDTBL: Pretty Lights - "High School Art Class"
In association with Get Your OJ, This week, the RNDTBL goes to "High School Art Class" with Pretty Lights. Below are the results.
JESS SAYS: Pretty Lights's "High School Art Class" is a style that I have had very little exposure to, but if all drum and bass is this awesome, I clearly need to open my ears. The horn section got me hooked right from the start.
This is super groovy and I will most defnitely be adding this song to my current itunes rotation.
AARON SAYS: This one starts off very inviting with it's 2 step kick beat and hard power guitar, but like much of the songs like this, its lyrics weaken its power. They're more filler than thriller. Sampled from another track and thrown on this beat.
I say go all or go nothing...
The production quality is there but the sounds and samples are from the turn of the millenium. I say if you're a person who still loves that turn of the century electro funk sound, this tunes for you.
I give this song a 3 out of 5
JASON SAYS: Although it might sound less original after repeated listens, I think this band is onto something. The sound is catchy, the beat is catchy, the sample is catchy, with just enough “glitch”.“High School Art Class” made me want to keep digging and see what else this band was capable of.
