Amanda Blank has been a guilty pleasure of mine for a hot minute now. Her debut album, I Love You hit stores the other week; I picked it up last night to make sure I know some songs before I go to her in store performance at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles later tonight (7pm 6pm). The album is decent overall, but this track, I liked a lot.
"DJ" is has this sick throwback beat that hardly belongs in the club, though I smell a handful of great remixes in the near future. This song features a side of Amanda Blank that doesn't come out often. Even her mushier songs, like "A Love Song" lose whatever charm they managed to grab onto after a couple of listens — but "DJ" sounds like a keeper. Listen to it here
