If you were disappointed by RJD2's most recent release, perhaps you should check out Gotye's (pronounced: Goat-e-yea) debut album Like Drawing Blood. An album that really transcends genres or any classification in general, Like Drawing Blood certainly mixes and matches different samples and vocals that end up sounding coherent and complete.

Gotye is really part DJ, part vocalist, and part original songwriter. He writes songs in the way that artists like Moby does--you're never quite sure what the next track is going to sound like, but as the song "A Distinctive Sound" says, each track is a journey into sound. "A Distinctive Sound" consists of a banging bassline with semi-random humorous old-time samples. The song would otherwise be lost if not for the consistently awesome beat that rings out in the background. Or have a listen to "Learnalilgivinanlovin" which is most definitely the best song on the album. A song that probably should have come out of motown, "Learnalilgivinandlovin" is an infectiously sweet song that is sure to please all listeners. And for those that enjoy ballads, the soulful "My Heart's a Mess" shows Gotye's songwriting prowess.

Go and get your hands on Like Drawing Blood.
Listen to "Learnalilgivinandlovin" (4.9/5)
Listen to "My Heart's A Mess" (4.3/5)
