Wild Young Heartsby The Noisettes
The Noisettes defied expectations on their debut, What's the Time Mr. Wolf?, mixing funk and folk, garage rock and gospel, and punk and pop. They also defy expectations on Wild Young Hearts, a collection of songs that's a lot more polished and cohesive than what came before. "Sometimes," a pretty, acoustic jazz-pop number, and "Don't Upset the Rhythm"''s unabashed disco-pop reaffirm that Shingai Shoniwa sounds great on almost any style of music. Elsewhere, the title track's giddy, witty bounce recalls Lily Allen as much as it does a classic '60s pop tune; "24 Hours" nods to Santogold's shiny new wave revival; and "Never Forget You"'s soulful strut echoes Amy Winehouse.

I LOVE Noisettes, and can't wait to pick up their older work, "What's the Time, Mr. Wolf?". While I love the title track, I can't pick one specific song that is my true favorite, and it's rare to like every song(it hasn't left the CD player since I bought it). Shingai Shoniwa is brilliant, and as a fellow natural haired woman of color, she is my hero!
I heard them on David Letterman and immediately wanted to get the CD. The songs/music are so different - a combination of quite a few types of sounds. Her voice is just beautiful and she is extremely capable of singing many different songs as heard on this CD. I'm not good at describing things but I just love it. It was one of the best purchases I made.
This band is so infectious! Chingai's voice has the same smoky, husky quality of Billie Holiday, yet is very modern and works with the music. I've been rocking this CD in the car since it was released, and is a fantastic addition for someone who looks for eclectic (as in "radio has a hard time playing this") music that doesn't fit a specific style.
