The Whitest Boy Alive - Rules LP 2009

What is it?
It's a German-Norwegian crossover project producing jaunty pop songs which you can hum in the bath if you so wish.

Why should you listen?
What's not to like really? It's funky in a German-Norwegian kind of way and you just have to do a funny walk to at least four of these songs. It's not pretentious, (just look at them - the next Coldplay they're not) and it's just an enjoyable slice of pop fun that disappeared after the 1980's. If Level 42 were re-invented for the 21st Century they'd sound a lot like TWBA even down to the base, the bad fashion and a lack of adequate genre.

What's it like?
It's like sucking a 'Sun Lolly' on a warm Summer's day.

What's the best song?
"High on the Heels." I defy you not to do a funny walk to this one.

Who does it sound like?
Hot chip with real instruments, The Beloved, Level 42, Haircut 100.
