    Belatedly released in America following Jamie T's increasing buzz in his native Great Britain, PANIC PREVENTION is a remarkably self-assured debut for a singer and songwriter who was barely 20 when it was recorded. Jamie Treyas incorporates elements of hip-hop into his DIY one-man-band electropop in a style very much like Gorillaz, whose single "Kids With Guns" he had remixed in 2005 (leading to his own deal with Virgin Records). PANIC PREVENTION is no mere Gorillaz mash-up, however: hit singles "Salvador" and "If You Got the Money" echo everyone from the Clash's dub side circa SANDINISTA! to 1980s Britfunk outfits like Level 42 and A Certain Ratio.
