BAND CRUSH: MARK RONSON & THE BUSINESS INTL
music so good, you’ll forget it’s monday.
Mark Ronson might just be the most popular guy in the music industry. After all, as a Grammy-winning producer who’s collaborated with everyone from Amy Winehouse to Lily Allen, you’re bound to have a few famous friends. Now he’s enlisted some of these artists in Record Collection, the latest album from his band Mark Ronson & the Business INTL. Filled with everything from soul to pop to thumping techno, it’s more like an awesomely eclectic mix CD than a strictly cohesive record- and that’s a good thing.Whether it’s the ’60s-tinged “Bike Song” or the thumping dance track “Bang Bang Bang” (which features another Band Crush, MNDR), Record Collection has an anthem perfect for basically any occasion.Maybe it’s because the star-studded album includes everyone from Ghostface Killah to Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, but even though they are brand-new, all of the songs sound weirdly familiar (meaning, you can sing along with them right away). Not that we’re complaining. See Mark Ronson on NYLON TV!
