Pluto Jonze
- Eject

Apparently he’s already talking about album number two - if this great effort is anything to go by, come on Sunshine – get on with it!

If you're living near live music places that have had Pluto Jonze play and not seen him yet, you're missing out, friends. Thankfully you can now listen lustfully to his first full lengther, a dozen dancey-plus tracks that are, frankly, hot as. You'll probably already know singles Plastic Bag In A Hurricane, the title track and the unpronounceable but awesome beginner Hispedangongonajelanguiro (Capiche?). These are all worth the hype they have been afforded and show what can happen when an artist gets a little too attached to the process (perhaps driving himself a little crazy, but making such a tight track for us in return). Beyond these, take some time to also let your toes tap to Love The World Like A Child (with some genre bending that Beck would be proud of) and the bittersweetness of Meet You Under Neon. The vocoder here somehow adds to the funkiness of this track (I know, who thought it possible?) and it gives Jonze a bit of sonic space to breathe and get a bit sentimental.

Actually, from here there's a bit of shift in the album and it's towards the end that Mr Jonze can break your heart, let's be clear about that. Same Perfume does this in particular (his quest for 'somebody new' makes you wanna give him a hug) and, while it's gorgeous and airy, there's no time to wallow for long. With next track Come On Sunshine, Jonze gives a literal call to get back up and get on with it (“Everyone falls down, everyone feels the darkness... so come on sunshine”). Apparently he's already talking about album number two - if this great effort is anything to go by, come on Sunshine – get on with it!
