Josie Field - 1984

2011-05-27 07:52
Josie Field equals a folk-pop entity that has always just been around...and I mean 'around' in a good way.

She's more the Alanis Morrissette, do-what-you-do type than the Lady Gaga I-am-commercial type...and that is a good thing, because that personality makes 1984 a surprising and pleasant listen.

Album opener "Everything is as it Should Be" starts off with a hula-hula like guitar riff which reminds me of the movie 50 First Dates. Sounds weird? It's really not. It's the perfect song to introduce the diversity of the album.

Unlike Josie's previous albums, 1984 consists of a few things new, including in-your-face rock tune "Power", experimental bluesy electro track "Right Now" and Matchbox Twenty-sounding "Walking a Fine Line".

One of the definite highlights on the album is duet "Goodbye"  with Arno Carstens. Their voices blend like smooth whiskey over ice and evoke feelings of longing for that perfect someone.

"Rolling with the Punches" is also classic Josie, with that smooth funky vocal accompanied by acoustic guitar.
An interesting listen, whether you're a fan or not.

Field seems to be improving with every album.
