JFF - A “Criminal In Bed” Won’t Do For L2


Holler!

Sister duo L2 (Melissa and Jessica Labbadia) sent us their new track, “Criminal in Bed” (click here to listen) to review. To be honest, I was surprised at how much I liked it. It’s your standard fun power pop fare. It’s super bubblegum-esque and is definitely danceable. While the production on the verses sounds a bit cheap, overall, it’s quite good. I like the anthemic quality it possesses. It totes brings me back to the Spice Girls’ “GIRL POWER” era of the ‘90s. I can easily envision pre-tween fans of Katy Perry singing this song at the top of their lungs, which worries me a bit because I sincerely hope they’ve never encountered a “Criminal in Bed” and I don’t feel completely comfortable knowing that a song with this kind of content will be marketed to that particular demographic. However, with that said, I can’t imagine what my life would have come to if I hadn’t sung “hit me baby one more time” at the age of eleven. Oh, how I miss the old, exploited Brit Brit.  Anyhow, these two gals are probably quite young, so if this is what they’ve got now, I’m sure there will be great things to come. They have a solid track on their hands and I sincerely wish them all the success in the world!

Unapologetically,

Gregory

  3. Now I know what "your shit is in the pool" means. That is, it's not to be taken literally. See how much I learn from your blog!
