Culture 24 August 2011 Music that makes me smile New tunes by Fruit Bats and Rollo Jean. Print HTML This week has brought with it two records that, under normal circumstances, I think I would have hissed at but instead have taken in my embrace and allowed to define the new me. This pair of identity shakers are a bit feel-good, sort of cheesy, a bit high-five and, dare I say it, a touch glam. Fruit Bats' "You're Too Weird", off their fifth album, Tripper, could, at first, make you gag ever so slightly. It made me think of the Bee Gees in a rubbish western -- I don't want to think about that ever. Then there is "St Tropez" by Rollo Jean, a deeply confusing piece that travels through a variety of genres, sprinkling stardust and sequins over all of them as it goes. To counteract all this glam, there is a slightly seedy and uncomfortable video of some girl stripping in their bedrooms to accompany it. I suspect that the boy Toby, who is behind Rollo Jean, might prove to be a rather talented chap. It can't have been easy to control a record that sounds so desperate to keep rushing off in a thousand directions. I may, any day now, come to dislike both of these records but, for now, they are making me smile. › Audio: Gaddafi vows "death or victory" Fresh sounds from the BBC 6 Music DJ Subscribe More Related articles Niall Horan just released his first solo single, and it sounds a lot like a One Direction song Harry Styles’ starring role in Another Man magazine proves he is the perfect teen idol Harry Styles: What can three blank Instagram posts tell us about music promotion?
