Jazz Mills - Little Baby
Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

I think we can safely say that if you've opened shows for Arcade Fire, Stevie Wonder and Fleet Foxes amongst other big names then you're doing something right.Texan artist Jazz Mills has done just that, and that's before we mention collaborations with The Black Angels and The Kills. So it's quite a mix of styles that she's been associated with, and quite a diverse list of fans, so it's not that surprising that new single 'Little Baby' (taken from her self-titled debut EP, out next week) is not only very good but it somehow transcends genre somewhat as well. This song sounds like lots of different things all at once, yet not quite like anything else currently doing the rounds.

You might at first notice a '60s soul vibe going on which brings in the Motown connection, but the bass and the structure are from country, so that explains why the alt-country crowd may like this too. At its heart 'Little Baby' is purely and simply a classic pop song, but one that engages with everyone, from uber-cool types like The Kills to commercial stadium acts like Coldplay (another she's warmed-up the crowd for). What makes this work so well is just how understated the whole song is. In another artist or producer's hands there would be temptation to push everything forward in the mix or go overboard with certain aspects. That never happens here; it's the song and the voice that do the work, and what mighty fine work they do.

Cry When it Happens / Llora Cuando Te Pase
2010, 14 min, 16mm

One of three films at last year's New York Film Festival that seemed vital.
"Llora Cuando Te Pase embarks on a warm and serene transfer between the concepts of presence and absence. From the young people on screen at the start (two girls lying on a sofa first, two boys in a motel later), there follows an expansive exploration of the different landscapes of Los Angeles. The film contains the image that has become a premature icon of the works of the author: the TV set in front of the mountain, a object for the transmission of memory placed in an unforgettable natural space; it is an energetic and extremely peculiar example of cinema within cinema. In Laida Lertxundi's creations, the blue of the sky continues to shine and the music (in this case 'Little Baby' by The Blue Rondos generating vitality and dynamism) continues to be heard even when night falls."
