Album Review: Jamiroquai – Automaton

Album Review: Jamiroquai - Automaton
Most people made their mind up about Jamiroquai back in the early-90s when Jay Kay burst onto the scene, with a didgeridoo and a big fur hat, sounding like Stevie Wonder on Acid Jazz. Either you dismissed him – and his tabloid- friendly, photographer-baiting, speed-camera-luring behavior only added to the strength of your feelings – or you were one of the millions of people who helped him amass a fortune that’s enabled him over the years to buy almost enough cars to stock Beaulieu Motor Museum single-handedly.

But when he returned in February with the title track to his eighth album, something had changed. “Automaton” is, whether you want to admit it or not, a fascinatingly unusual song full of unexpected musical and lyrical quirks. For starters, it breaks into an opening verse that bears almost no relation to its opening 30 seconds. Then there’s the strange buzzing and whirring sounds, worthy of Aphex Twin, that interrupt him; the song’s almost random application of vocoder; a chorus whose Moroder-esque vibe is positively delirious; a breakdown with a Sugarhill Gang-style rap; and references to Billy Idol (“Eyes without a face) and David Bowie (“Feel like a man that fell to earth”). It’s so bizarre that, when it fades out after four-and-a-half minutes, even haters ought to agree it’s too early.

Nothing else on Automaton quite lives up to this brilliantly bizarre comeback, but it’s still an album that becomes increasingly difficult to resist. Like Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, feel-good disco lies right at its heart: check opener “Shake It On” stabs of Philly strings and Nile Rodgers guitar licks, or the funk bass that drives “Nights Out In The Jungle”.

“Hot Property”, meanwhile, seems to have combined the French duo’s Around The World with a sped-up version of the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive, whose chorus it borrows while adding random spoken Japanese.

Even the blander numbers can be striking: the racy club- pop of “Superfresh”; “Vitamin”, with its strange trumpet interlude; “Summer Girl” well-crafted disco-soul. Fans will be thrilled, and Automaton does what cynics would have thought was impossible: it insists that you re-evaluate Jamiroquai. When you gonna learn?

Lyrics

I feel like anything could happen
The stars look different tonight
They glowing all around me
It’s flowing through my body
I can feel it, I can feel it

Don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming
There must be something in the air
The time is disappearing
This moments never leaving
I can feel it
I can feel it

You got me started
Aint nothing on earth can stop it
It’s crazy, I’m falling
I don’t know what else to call it
Oh do you believe in magic
Do you, do you, do you
Do you believe in magic
Oohhh
Dancing together
Aint nothing that could be better
Tomorrow don’t matter
We’ll make the night last forever
So do you believe in magic
Do you, do you, do you
Do you believe in magic
Oohhh

Free-falling it’s a new emotion
I swear there’s diamonds in your eyes
Come hold me like you mean it
Dont wanna keep this secret
Can you feel it
My heart beating
You make me wanna do these wild things
Your touch is supernatural
Oh I can’t fight this feeling
I’m floating through the ceiling
Can you feel it
I can feel it
Ohh

Chorus

Magic, magic, magic, magic
Do you believe in
Do you believe in
Magic, magic, magic, magic
Do you believe in magic

lyric video kinetic typography

It is almost customary for artists to opt for kinetic typography via lyric videos. Horse Meat Disco use this animation technique also known as moving text so that you can sing along to their Nu-Disco single, “Jump Into The Light”. What’s more, fonts come to life as they evoke emotions. If you’re looking for ideas to embellish your visual project, this music video could be a source of inspiration. Nowadays, it doesn’t matter the low budget for music videos, just with a vivid palette, you can catch the eye of anyone who appreciates your work.

Most importantly, vocals of the legendary Kathy Sledge (Sister Sledge’s lead singer) still sound amazing. It lacks the groovy strings of the classic Disco anthem “He’s The Greatest Dancer”, however, it has the right beats required for maximum enjoyment. “Jump Into The Light” is an ear-pleasing jam that brings back so many good nightlife memories to mind. Not to mention, the delicious funky instrumentation was co-produced by Luke Solomon. Well, these London-based DJs never disappoint with their top-quality tunes.

Galactic Disco is back in style again! One of my favorite singers, Kylie Minogue just premiered her new visuals for “Say Something”. The 15th studio album from the Australian popstar is entitled ‘DISCO’ and will be out in stores on November 6th. In the clip, I believe she plays the role of a cosmic goddess who charms everyone with her super sweet vocals. Add to this, the right amount of trippy electronics that let your imagination fly. Arguably even better are her lyrics which portray a beautiful message of love despite the distance. Like a fine wine, Kylie gets better with age. On a side note, she managed to do this piece of art in the middle of a global pandemic, well, she deserves a special round of applause!

Lyrics

We’re a million miles apart
In a thousand ways
Baby, you can light up the dark
Like a solar-scape
And I can almost feel you coming
And your heartbeat race
Someone, somebody or something
In the choice we make
I, I think about you

Whoah whoah whoah whoah yeah
I can’t help thinkin’ ‘bout you
I’m always thinkin’ ‘bout you
Whoah whoah whoah whoah yeah
S, s, s, say something
Say something
Tell me how you’re feeling

Oh we all got wanderlust
In the darkest place
So we’re going with our heart
Yeah it’s all the rage
Oh we’re just
Just trying to find ourselves
In the storms we chase
Baby in an endless Summer
We can find our way
I, I think about you

Coz love is love, it never ends
Can we all be as one again
Coz love is love, it never ends
Can we all be as one again

Lyrics

Feel buried alive, this city is airtight
Suffocatin’, lonely in the crowds
I’m surrounded by all the screens of their lies
Screamin’ into space to drown them out

I fell down so low, found nowhere to go
But I know you wait for me
You wait for me
So far out of sight, stepped into the white
But I know you wait for me

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

So hold me tight, I just wanna fade out
Somewhere we can shut the world away
I’m ready to hide far from the fallouts
They won’t find us in the paradise we’ll make

I fell down so low, found nowhere to go
But I know you wait for me
You wait for me
So far out of sight, stepped into the white
But I know you wait for me

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

Free fallin’ from the high
I’m followin’ the voice I know
Free fallin’ from the high

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

"Attention", Michael Aguilar Premieres A Disco-Filled Jam!
Queer singer-songwriter Michael Aguilar creates a disco-filled jam for the LGBT community. The feel-good track called “Attention” comes accompanied by his first-ever music video. At a time when the world is suffering due to the pandemic, this new single invites everyone to show off funky dance moves in self-isolation. You can tell he puts a lot of passion for singing, plus, lending a sultry sheen to the whole composition. The 27-year-old artist whose musical heroes are Britney Spears and Dua Lipa is set to drop a debut EP in December. So far, I believe it’s a groundbreaking material that is sure to exceed expectations. A masterful fusion of Pop and Disco that still seem entertaining for radio plays, so stay tuned!
