New single 'The Scene' is pure tune. It doesn't quite fit a particular category, more a continuation of classic songwriting. The lyrics are sharp and cleanly sung in his light estuary tones, brushed drums shuffle, bass plods and guitars are both strummed and plucked. You could call it jaunty but that would seem derogatory, you could compare it to early Jack Penate , but that would have the same effect. Salami is worthy of acclaim and 'The Scene' is catchy and classy and natural. It's fairly unordained which leaves the song to speak for itself, gimmick and polish free. It is what it is, and what it is should be celebrated as a triumph of songwriting and recording over studio flair and bandwagon jumping. Keep L.A. Salami and his team just as they are, whichever super-producers should happen to come knocking.
