Dude's finally stretching out a bit. I know the fans are all "Signals" over it, but it's a well written catchy number.

The video seems deliberate in its simplicity and laid back approach.

Nice job.

I'll listen to Signals until my ears bleed before I'll listen to Permanenting again and it's not because I'm a progophile (I'm not), it's because I don't like that song.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

I like it. Catchy. It's close in spirit to '70s yacht rock. He seems to be channeling his inner Rundgren.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

I could see that getting a remix and ending up a proper EDM song.  It fits into the sort of 70's dance revival that's going on lately (Coldplay, Chromeo, Jamiroquai, etc.)


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

I'm really looking forward to listening to the album as a whole, when it's released next month.

Yeah. I don't like it at all. Maybe the rest of the album will be better

The other couple of songs I've heard weren't much better to me.

It's cool, an instantly likeable pop song for me...

Gave it half a listen. Sounds to me like ELO. I preferred the bhangra to the music.

I haven't had time to listen to it very much yet, but most of what I've heard so far seems reasonably agreeable. "Pariah" kind of stands out for me, but then Ninet pretty much kills whenever she guests on Steven's recordings.

 

After the talk of "making pop great again," though, I'm not sure most of this is what that description would lead you to expect, except for "Permanating." Most of this doesn't really feel like pop as such, at least in terms of something that would be really accessible to mainstream radio - to me it's more like conceptual rock again, just delivered in smaller bites and with the complexity of the song structures scaled back a little bit.

Sounds like he should have called it "Permanating Waves" then.  B)

 "Pariah" kind of stands out for me, but then Ninet pretty much kills whenever she guests on Steven's recordings.

The song, from composition to tone, makes me think of 80's Mike Oldfield (the poppy half of all the albums he put out then).
That's not a bad thing, in my estimation.
