Cazwell's so hot right now, Cazwell. According to the breathless publicity e-mail I just received, the NYC-based queer emcee's new track "All Over Your Face" is the second-most watched music video on YouTube right now. I don't know or care about all that, but I will say that Caz has come up with something pretty catchy. "I don't care if you think I'm dirty/I AM DIRTY!/Learn me!"
Like Spalding Rockwell and Avenue D (the latter cameo in this video), Cazwell is an electroclash refugee. But "All Over Your Face" uses that to his advantage, channeling that movement's penchant for gritty, disco-inspired bottom end into a track that's sort of hilariously awful - kind of like most of electroclash - but also catchy enough to compete on dancefloors with whatever Polow Da Don is putting out. And what that means in the moment is that "All Over Your Face" is a WAY better time than Fergie's "London Bridge."
