“I want your dress on my bedroom floor.”

“Closer” by Ty Andelman | Looks like my queue had foreseen all the confusion in Manila – here’s another cooling slinker. However, I’ll focus on the closing bit in the email that Orange County-based singer Ty Andelman sent. “‘Closer’ is a pretty sexual song,” he wrote, “so if you’re under 18, please have an adult listen with you.” Well, somebody finally thought I’m younger than my actual age – people thought I was 26 when I was 20; just now people assumed I’m 33 when I’m just 26! But I digress. Sexual content aside (let’s be frank – you don’t notice until you pay really close attention, and until you look for it) Ty’s debut EP, At Your Age, has interesting layers and even more interesting things to say. He’s frank… and yet he’s slinky. Production’s a bit of a given – it’s the whooshing thing you hear in pop nowadays; if that’s not your thing there’s the acoustic version – but, well, this is the sort of thing you have to pay close attention to to get. The EP drops on 1 December, by the way. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
