Addicted to the Noisettes' "Never Forget You"

London trio the Noisettes released their sophomore LP Wild Young Hearts this past April, but for some reason it hasn't been released yet in the US. After listening to the great early 60's soul of "Never Forget You," I can't begin to understand why. Combining the melodies of girl groups like the Angles and Crystals with a ska-style up-beat organ and guitar, singer Shingai Shoniwa delivers instantly catchy and singable lyrics alongside punchy head-bobbing rhythm. In terms of mixing genres and styles, it doesn't get much better.
