ARTIST: Lily Allen
TITLE: “Everyone’s At It”
WEB DEBUT: Oct. 23, 2008
ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: Like me, Lily Allen hasn’t had the best year, which might be why “Everyone’s At It,” which she posted today, has something of a paranoid feel about it–the music’s dark, the lyrics are about staying out late and lying about drug habits. But for something with such a dark feel, it sure has a nice desperation-disco groove to it. I might lop off the “solo” of synth bloops and bleeps–it sounds like an e-wank more than anything else–but I like the idea of her crafting a song around something that sounds suspiciously like a sample of the theme from Dr. Who for sure.
WHERE TO HEAR IT: It’s on her MySpace.
