about

Hawker M. James‘s “Some Attention,” the new single from his forthcoming LP, radiates swagger. The guitars strut and primp and James’s voice drips like honey, thick and slow. There are elements of ’70s glam to be sure — the handclap rhythms, the sinister lyrics, the wailing chorus — but there’s also elements of space-age psych. The song feels coated in stardust: James’s voice is distant, and odd objects enter and leave the frame like flying saucers. It’s bold and brash and gutsy, the perfect teaser for the album to come. -Wondering Sound review

lyrics

I believe in your intention
I believe in soul retention
I believe in the last temptation
I reprise in heavenly tension

I need it
I need some of your sun
To lighten
I need some attention

You feel for the haughty ascension
I’ll tend to the your devotions
You climb up every mention
I’ll scheme up every notion

I need it
I need some of your sun
To lighten
I need some attention

With the Long Playing Lo-Fidelity album, he proves that, whether working with a medium, small, or no budget, his innate knack can't be contained. ... more
