Simon Curtis' 8-bit Heart

I have been known to rock a Kanye-like Lego heart brooch and wear black plastic framed glasses. So it is no wonder why I am digging Simon Curtis and his look. He’s a pop singer who is giving away his debut album. Yes, you read that right. His album is free.

His visual is great, geek with style and soaring falsetto. His album is mostly good, solid pop. There are some real highlights, especially the title track, a pulsing electro-soul song. Some songs sound unfinished. But this can be forgiven once you find out it was recorded in a basement in West Virginia.

Check him out. Download his album. Smile. Good, free music will warm anyone’s heart.
