Pop Number from Aaron Rux
Admittedly, I don’t know much about Aaron Rux, though I’m currently fascinated by his story (he left the States to work as an artist in Spain long ago), but I do know I’m in love with his newest single. It’s a gentle pop number, filled with all these little extemporaneous details that truly elevate it above your everytune. Honestly, I think if he sped it up and made it a little more ramshackle, he might get some Harlem comparisons, which notes the pop sensible roots of both Harlem and Aaron. Still, its those flourishes that really suck me in, like the organ grind or the simple hand claps; I’m a sucker for extra arrangements, what can I say? Crying Cowboys is Aaron’s next LP, out this Friday via El Volcan Music.
