Disco love songs.

Disco love songs.

I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been more of a ruckus over Kennedy.* He writes three-minute pop-disco ditties, and while some tracks on his debut Life Is A Party occassionaly veer awfully close to satire, for the most part the disc is stuffed full of frothy fun.

I've been sitting on this album for a while now, primarily because I only just got around to giving the whole thing a proper listen. The three stand-out tracks are the propulsive jerkiness of "Karate," the disco-lite of "Let It Out," the fun "John & Yoko" featuring guest vocals from Yelle.

Life Is A Party isn't a timeless classic, but it's worth flipping through the tracks on iTunes to select your favorites for a kickin' dance EP.

Here's a taste.

(And no, that's not Yelle in the photo ... just some random fan in a random live shot with Kennedy.)

MP3: Kennedy "John & Yoko (featuring Yelle)"

*Maybe there has been a ruckus and I've just been completely blind to it.
