After every single song on Uffie's MySpace has been run into the ground, it seems well-timed that Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans should showcase a handful of new tracks, though a considerable percentage of that previously unreleased material falls into the run into the ground MySpace category I just mentioned ("Pop the Glock," "First Love," and "MCs Can Kiss" are all present and accounted for). So, after getting married, divorced, and having a somewhat unplanned pregnancy, Uffie was at last ready to contemplate creating a few new songs for her album debut.
It's indicative of some kind of star quality that Uffie has been riding on the success of the same six songs since she began her recording career in 2005. Basically, "Pop the Glock," "First Love," "MCs Can Kiss," "Dismissed," and "Robot Oeuf" (from the Los Abrazos Rotos Soundtrack, proving Pedro Almodovar's artistic dexterity with choosing amazing songs to take drugs to) have allowed her to parlay her way into a full-length album while still finding ample time to enjoy Parisian nightlife.
Uffie isn't shy or apologetic about admitting to a certain amount of laziness when it comes to her musical devotion, highlighted on track 2 of Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, "Art of Uff," in which she airily comments, "Me and my stupid flow, me and my MySpace with only three tracks a year and they still talk about me." Her associations with Feadz, Justice, Pharrell Williams, and Ed Banger Records have also had a small part in elevating her success.
Frequently compared to Ke$ha (and that's the last time I'm spelling her name that way, who the fuck does she think she is to believe people should have to use a dollar sign as an S every goddamn time she's mentioned in print?), Uffie takes the crown for singing about youthful indiscretions. You ain't never gonna hear Kesha sing lyrics like, "I'm like this cold ass bitch and I ain't ready to suck" or "I'm a damn crazy brat and I don't give a fuck, I've got my man, my sound blasted, and I'm ready to fuck." Granted, these songs, "Hot Chick" and "Ready to Uff," are taken from her earlier dalliances and do not appear on Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, traces of the fiercely defiant "musical youth who rules the nation" are present on "ADD SUV" and "Give It Away." Still, Uffie appears far tamer than before. But even with a tinge of domesticity, Uffie is too lewd to make it on Top 40 radio anytime soon. And that's usually the mark of a good artist.
