Off of his upcoming Bye Bye 17, an album arriving May 6 via the Strokes' Julian Casablancas's Cult Records, "Lady You Shot Me" is a brass-filled barrel of R&B that'll hopefully be a featured cut from his performance at the Triple Rock Social Club coming up on March 28.
Har Mar Superstar on You Can Feel Me's 10th anniversary
Aside from the facelift to his backing aesthetic, Har Mar has adopted a raw-throated delivery that brings urgency, pathos, and a genuine passion to the song."Lady, You Shot Me" belongs in the realm of the fiery side of Cee-Lo Green, and the Daptone Records/Mark Ronson explosion of retro soul production.
And, if the rest of the album hits even close to this hard, this could be Har Mar's year. This material looks good on you, Mr. Tillmann. Local radio programmers, don't sleep on this. Updated: Nothing to worry about in that department.
