Okay, fuck you, Justin Bieber -- THIS is how it's done.
Matt Jaffe & The Distractions utterly addictive new single "Backs of Our Eyelids."
Nicely under-produced by none other than former Talking Head keyboard guy Jerry Harrison, who discovered Jaffe at an open mic thingie somewhere.
Of course, from my vantage point several hundred decades away from the target demographic, this kid thinks he's way cuter than he actually is. But the song and the performance are still awfully impressive accomplishments for a 17 year old, n'est-ce pas?
More to the point, this is in fact a rock record, and I'm a sucker for endangered species. A full album is due later this year.
