Paul Kissaun's Rude Gospel is an unusual Brit-pop album. Restless and eclectic, the singer has created a tapestry of earlier sounds and modern vocals with a dozen original songs. For example, Birthday Boyis a doo wop-soul tribute while Every Little Helps and Coffee Jar are jump boogies.One More Time is a jazz ballad. Art Rich is Elvis Costello meets Chicago. And there's a strong David Bowie flavor throughout. In fact, Bowie Bowie Bowie, my favorite, is superb. You'll find this one at iTunes or here.
