Even Stevens, the first single from the new Bullion/Jesse Hackett project Blludd Relations, was a fun and colourful pop song.
It sported a wry, playful smile on its face for the whole of the track’s 4 minutes and 47 seconds – I loved it for that. This Micachu reinterpretation, not so fun, but fuck me it great. It chugs along at a sloth’s pace, moans, shuffles and at times is frustrating as hell to listen to – but my god it’s engaging. It might only sound like the original track’s twice-removed cousin, but it’s enough for it to be invited over at Christmas to clutter up the place.
It gets invited around every year.
