John O, a.k.a. Diamond Rings’ “All Yr Songs” hit the blogs over a year ago but it wasn’t until I heard “It’s Not My Party” that I was sold on this Toronto dude’s style. It’s enough to wrap your head around that deep moan coming from such a sparkling boy-face, but his jams are also decidedly minimalist in comparison to his over-the-top style. “It’s Not My Party” hits all the right moods of a synth-driven heartbreak song with not much more that 4 instruments. And that “hmmm-mmmmm” is just perfect for humming along at first listen. Digging back into Diamond Rings I now have new appreciation for the more peppy “All Yr Songs” with it’s similarly sing-alongable “ohh oh oh ohh”s and simple keyboard beat. Both tracks would feel equally appropriate pool-side or fire-side, a rare treat.
