Take A Sip Of Miguel’s ‘Drinks’

On the just-leaked "How Many Drinks," Miguel ponders the well-worn man-at-the-club question of just how many adult beverages one needs to lure a woman to a more intimate setting. But the singer throws a recession-friendly twist with "back of the mind I hope you say two or three," and a clock-watching impatience that's amusing if not necessarily suave. It's essentially a four-minute interlude, on which Miguel (and a chorus of Miguelitos) croon the same few bars about the time/money economics of seduction over a light, percussion-free guitar bed. I'm probably the last one at SBHQ to warm to Miguel, but at this rate his Kaleidoscope Dream LP may just end up on my must-buy list this fall. [Photo: Keith Estep]
