Maxim Senin – Stupid Girl
Sometimes music comes along that throws everything into the mix. On ‘Stupid Girl’, that’s certainly the case, but the track doesn’t suffer as a result.
There’s a strong balance across the mix, with prominent brass throughout and some pretty muscly guitars. If anything, the vocals need to come a little more into the foreground to really bring the song to life. That said, the vocals are a highlight; interesting, tonally characteristic and occasionally gritty. Add to that the very pretty female backing vocals, and ‘Stupid Girl’ is a very pleasant track indeed. Keep an eye out for Maxim Senin, and check out some of the back catalogue while you’re at it – the downloads include some fun extras such as a PDF of the horn section sheet music, which isn’t something you come across all that often!
