Released:
Label: Cherrytree / Interscope
It says something about how far R&B has come that Here's Willy Moon is slotted "alternative." This is R&B: Moon offers fresh takes on not-obscure tunes by Little Willie John ("Shakin'') and Screamin' Jay Hawkins ("I Put a Spell on You," duh). But he also samples Wu-Tang on "Yeah Yeah" and Kanye not once but twice (the "uh-huhs" from "Power" for the James Brown reimagining "Get Up," and the somber backdrop of "Jesus Walks" for "Railroad Track"). What's alternative is the anachronistic part -- the compelling way Moon crisscrosses old tunes and new beats.
