Timez Are Weird These Days - WARNER
FILTER Grade: 78%
By Jason Parham on July 21, 2011
Inspired by vanguards Leon Ware (Michael Jackson’s “I Wanna Be Where You Are”) and Morrissey (The Smiths’ “William, It Was Really Nothing”), subterranean hybrid Theophilus London’s debut captures the capriciousness of the day with a sort of lightheartedness: “She got drunk, showed her pussy on World Star,” he rhymes on “Girls Girls $.” It’s a soul-pumping moment in time, a testament to all that is right, wrong and weird in our world. And by album’s end, the anthems will have you romping well into the next decade.
