TOMMY GUERRERO, "A LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHIN"
From Mo Wax comes the second full-lengther from Tommy Guerrero, featuring a little bit of samba and spice tossed into an acoustic blend.
It's pretty yet rather sleepy in parts. The drum machines are primitive but the guitar playing is nice. The overall impression I get from this album is that it's very elemental, with songs that could easily be used as a starting point for more exciting or evolving pop tunes. For the most part, it's a simple downbeat album, which could stand to be deeper and less repetitious. On the other hand it would make an excellent album for havng guests over for dinner when you want to impress them with something more atmospheric than a Portishead record where everybody's singing through their soup course.
