Esser, I Can Boogie

Guess that the solo work from that drummer from Ladyfuzz wasn't high on the list of projects for 2008 that were getting people excited at the beginning of the year. But Ben Esser may well prove the pundits wrong if debut single 'I Love You' is anything to go on, featuring disarming sentiments of unspoken amour set to a jerky tune with echoes of the long lost Tom Vek. Eschewing the post-Arcade Fire pretension of multiple genre flux (popular melodramatic song, indeed) Esser classifies his music as pop/pop/pop and it's this single-minded pursuit of the catchy tune that should stand his career in good stead, as well as earning 'I Love You' Parallax View Single Of The Week.
