Sonny J - Can't Stop Moving
Matt Churchill 22/10/2007
Stealing a thunder on The Avalanches, Sonny J brings into the fray 'Can't Stop Moving'. Taken from his second album, the track relies heavily on samples and a rather repetitive "Can't stop moving/I can't stop moving" to give the track it's hook.
With 70's string arrangements and the spoken word as opposed to a structured vocal melody, the track glides in with an effortless Northern working men's club style introduction before the repeated strings loop into place. Sounding ever so slightly Gnarls Barkley, the track proceeds at a decent pace, but nothing more than floor-time groove (this is not bump and grind stuff here kids).
If 'Frontier Psychiatrist' was your bag, you will love this offering - if however, like me, it irritated you to the point of throwing the cat through your television screen every time the video came up on MTV, avoid for the feline's sake.
