BEST NEW MUSIC: COURTSHIP. - BAD FUN

courtship. - Bad Fun

courtship.’s “Bad Fun” is like the Danger Mouse produced Black Keys songs run through a Tame Impala filter. Jeez. How many more world-class artists can I compare these guys to in one sentence? How about one more try for good measure? This sun-drenched Los Angeles duo have got some serious early MGMT vibes, with a little bit of Cherub’s good-natured falsetto and the hit-songwriting chops of Mark Ronson thrown in for good measure. Woah, let’s stop right there before I go overboard. Unless…they really are that dope? Can it be?

 

COURTSHIP. - BAD FUN

I guess what I'm saying is that this blues-tinged psych rock is like, pretty much legitimately great and warrants only the finest in the comparison department. The caviar of compliments. But why? Well maybe it's because they’re dope and you should start paying attention right this very second because I’m pretty positive the next big thing has not only just arrived, they’ve BEEN HERE SINCE 2016. THEY’RE CALLING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE. I know I claim that the next big thing is here a lot like the boy who cried “next big thing” but honestly half the time it’s just a line I use. The other half though I mean it with direst sincerity.  This time I mean it. Like seriously. courtship. are about to be as big as the similarly named band, fun., were in 2012. Get ready for it. This band is going to synonymous with another kind of fun. The kind people like having.

From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
