Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

So is it a vocoder? Being a funky song I thought it was a talkbox. Anyway, my favourite part as well.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Let me go a bit further with this. When they sing "I'm here on monkey business, look what I found", they are singing to you (all of us listening to the song), and you are what's been found. We've all been musically shagged by PSB. :D [emoji38] I like this idea. The mere act of listening m...

It explains everything according to you or according to the general acceptance of what is regarded the explanation of it all?

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

It fits so much in. There’s loads going on. I’d say this is a great edit. I think the edit has really spoilt the pacing of the song, it feels rushed, which hugely diminishes the song’s climax. Not everyone agrees, though. I think you would probably feel differently if you hadn’t already heard the f...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I don't know. Maybe I should ask for more, but to my ears this song bounces up, keeps the tension with the talkbox bit and then the climax at the end. So it doesn't go nowhere, It goes to a climax.

By the way, finally a PSB song I can add to this list:

Groovy didn't make the cut for me. Loved the music but didn't like the lyrics.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I am loving this. This is a genius pastiche of modern pop and early 80s New York groove. (I hear the synth line from Tom Tom Club's "Wordy Rappinghood", anyone else?) What would the last three albums sound like without the production influence that Price has brought to the proceedings? I ...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Well, it passes the walking test. Really hard not to bounce to the beat on my walk to get coffee. To be fair, with the first snippet I was expecting some house beats would be added to the mix, a la future funk, I wasn't expecting it to go full retro. But I like it a lot. Can't wait for the full vers...

This is the first time they use a talk box, right?

Re: New/third single

Judging by this snippet, this has future funk influences! Was this the groove song?

Neil sounds like in the early 80s!
