A week ago, I posted on Twitter my musical wish for 2012: “I need more old-school house music in my life. That is all.” Well, turns out Sam Sparro heard my plea. (Humor me)
First off, can I get an Amen? How about a Hallelujah? Sam is taking it to CHURCH!
That wasn’t very professional blog writing, I know. But if you don’t feel uplifted and able to take on the world after listening to this record, you are either tone-deaf or you are without a heartbeat. It opens with a killer House piano riff, then leaps into full-on funk mode. You don’t know if it’s House, Funk or Disco, but it’s all good. Combine “Happiness” with teaser track “Shallow End,” and you will know why Return to Paradise is one of my most-anticipated discs of 2012. On top of that, Sam is hitting the road for a mini-tour in April, and tickets are only $15 here in the US. I am currently debating which city I will travel to, but I WILL see him on this tour. If you’d like to check him out, Sam is offering tickets up for liking his page and sharing the link. More details here.
