Ich hab' zwar grade erst eine Portion Musikvideos rausgehauen, aber Willy Moons „I wanna be your man“ verdient sein eigenes Posting, und zwar sowas von. Was der grade 20 Jahre alte Bub' aus Neu Seeland mir da grade in nur anderthalb Minuten um die Ohren gehauen hat, ist mit das frischeste, das ich in diesem Jahr gehört habe: Bo Diddley auf Acid mit Beats. Grandios! Hier der Track auf Soundcloud, von dort habe ich mir den Song grade gerippt und der läuft jetzt erstmal eine Weile auf Dauerrotation. Mit ein bisschen Glück hören wir von dem jungen Mann noch jede Menge.

Im Juli schrieb der Guardian über Willy Moon:

You take one listen to Willy Moon's debut single I Wanna Be Your Man and you really do think: "This sounds like the signature tune of Ellas Otha Bates given some avant-funk echo and crunch by Alicia Keys's hubby." Or you might, at a pinch, think it sounds like Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away taken to outer R&B space by Timbaland. It's referential – "People try to put you down," sings Moon, while his delivery is strongly redolent of Mick Jagger singing that self-same Holly song – but also refreshingly different, much like Friday's ska-pop girls from Norway. There is an audacious focus on vocal and beat, and a cheeky disregard for trendy mores, with its line about "talking jive all over town". Jive? The late-50s revival continues apace, daddio.
