Everyone knows I’m in the M.I.A./Santogold fanclub. Some Cali rasta/skater kid recommended Uffie to me so I could stop ruining his life by keeping the other two on a strict diet of repeatrepeatrepeat. So moderation isn’t my specialty, sue me – viva la indulgence.
Body Bass [Curtis Vodka Mix] – Uffie
In Charge – Uffie
Uffie is some twenty year old, American-born brat that relocated to Paris in her mid-teen years who has a lot of nerve. She’s an interesting combination of Peaches’ nastiness, Lily Allen’s wit, M.I.A.’s whimsical sing-songy melodies, and Santogold’s production style. Taking my affinity for brash, outspoken, strange women into account, I endorse her on principle…but I’m so conflicted. Her music [and I use that term loosely] is purposefully bad, tacky and charmingly/alarmingly vulgar.
The upbeat, disco-hop production is likeable and even kind of fun. It’s the lyrics that make you stop for a second. She’s real wild but extra casual about it. There’s something about her that makes me believe that she isn’t just trying to shock people by being a vulgar, enthusiastically sexual white girl who raps. She’s like The Blow‘s dirty, evil twin. I don’t even know what to say, I think she’s out of control.
I’m on the fence.
