It is time to unveil last week’s featured artist. The new year starts off with a beat, thanks to Felix da Housecat. I honestly can’t think of a better way to start off the year.
Through the course of the week, I listened to most of his studio albums: Kittenz and Thee Glitz (2001), Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever (2005), Virgo Blaktro and the Movie Disco (2007), He Was King (2009) and Narrative of Thee Blast Illusion (2015). I find it hard to keep track of his exact discography, but those are the albums that I own, so that’s what I stuck with. I did leave out the Son of Analogue (2011) album. I wasn’t a fan, especially after how much I loved He Was King.
I would like to apologize now to the other drivers stuck at the light at the corner of Huntley and Schrock in the northbound lanes when L.A. Ravers came on earlier this week. I’m sure the amount of bass you could hear was a little jarring, especially coming from a grey mid-sized sedan driven by a white guy in his late thirties. For those of you who didn’t turn onto Schrock and continued north with me, I further apologize for being stopped with me at the next light, as the song continued. On the bright side, we didn’t have to stop for a train on Wilson Bridge Road, so you were all saved from having to sit through more obnoxious levels of bass when Silver Screen (Shower Scene) came on after it.
I had a bunch of thoughts about Felix da Housecat week, and I hope to turn a couple of them into decent posts. I’m also hoping to reveal this week’s band in a timely manner. We’ll see, but definitely get into some Felix in the meantime.
