Love As A Weapon - Little Scream

from the album Cult Following (2016)

One of my funky friends contends that The Rolling Stones' song Emotional Rescue is the prototype for many of Prince's greatest tracks.  I am not certain that I agree with her, but how I would have loved hearing Prince cover that song.

This proposition really comes to light when I listen to Love As A Weapon, a delightfully infectious tune by Little Scream (a.k.a. Laurel Sprengelmeyer).

It is really all about tone - in particularly the tone of the rhythm guitar, coupled with the falsetto vocals - and the groove.  I really dig how the bass lays back in the track: fat and confident, not needing to be out front, while still commanding the listener to dance.

The song is also well structured and crafted.  I dig how it follows the structure of all great dance tunes (particularly the chill down) without being too obvious about it.  Good stuff.

Hope this song makes you dance...

    I really liked this band. It’s been some while since I listened to a band that just made me feel good, and this one hit the mark.

    I really like their use of image kaleidoscope effect in their video - nostalgic (Ahhhh). Also a real foot tapper.
