COSMO JARVIS-Humasyouhitch/Sonofabitch

This is so odd.  I could swear I’ve reviewed Cosmo Jarvis‘ double-album debut before, but I don’t see a record of it.  Anyhow, it’s worth another mention.  It takes balls–big balls–to start your career with a double album.  And, incidentally, Cosmo promises to wash his balls if you’ll grab them.  Yeah, it’s lowbrow pop, all hooks and thumping beat, but it’s also a lot of fun.  It made me think of The Darkness with a brain, or Franz Ferdinand without one.  I really wanted to dislike this album.   I mean, it’s UK aggressive postpunk, laced with cheap profanity, sexual references, and well-designed to be popular.  But then, why would I want to dislike this?  This is what teens should be listening to.  If we could get to a place where all pop was like Cosmo Jarvis, we would show great growth as a species.
