I’ve had a soft spot for UK vocalist/producer Leon T. Pearl since I first heard the demo of Take You To Market, and with the release of If You’re Still There it’s immediately apparent that my affection was well-deserved. It’s a little bit garage, a little bit two-step, and a lot of fun; Leon’s vocal hooks give this track a breath of originality that’s missing in so much music today.
If you’re reading this in the UK, you’ll be happy to know that Leon is currently touring with Aluna George. Be sure to check him out if they come through your town.
