Before “Somebody That I Used To Know” defied all expectations for an out of nowhere indie song to top the charts, Wally De Becker aka Gotye had made a record called Like Drawing Blood  (which would be an excellent recommendation for those who have only heard of his latest album) with similar (read as samplers who did their homework) production. Heck, Wally De Becker is credited for Assembly, Collection, and Performer in that order. Whatever your qualms may be about the future of music, Gotye has the voice and know-how make a hook out of any genre, and this Northern Soul romp of “Learnalilgivinanlovin” is no exception. A far better “I Feel Better” from his latest Making Mirrors, the harmonies and the vibe are top notch. Would love to see it used to ironic effect on Breaking Bad.
