"This Time" features a soulful and sultry vocal contribution from fellow Bay resident Audioangel atop Jaswho?'s upbeat, funky instrumentation. And while producer Jay Williams' song is heavy on the cheese (weren't references to being lifted "higher" rendered unusable decades ago?), there's a certain quality to the music that invokes a revitalized Studio 54-esque disco style. Obviously, "This Time" is no Donna Summer tune, but if this is what's being labeled the "San Francisco Sound," I think we're in capable hands. You can catch Williams' record release party for Nudroid Musik at Temple on October 30.
