Big Scary, Say Hi

Big Scary's second album contrarily asserts itself as art by its very title, Not Art. Where the duo's debut, Vacation, was of the navel-gazing variety, Not Art uses a hip-hop approach to production. Ironically, "Why Hip-Hop Sucks in '13" is a piano-led number, which highlights Joanna Syme's vocals, but the syncopated beats of "Luck Now" refocus on the hip-hop aspect. "Invest" handily brings hip-hop sensibilities to Big Scary's moody pop. The best bits are in classic Big Scary style: the Jeff Buckley - informed "Lay Me Down," which works like a potent downer, while the Verve-informed "Belgian Blues" does the opposite. The irreverent Say Hi also performs, introducing songs from his not-yet-released album, Endless Wonder.
