I didn’t make it to bed until well after midnight last night because I couldn’t stop listening. The first half of the album is killer, but the second half is all groove and move.
A video of Ariel Pink staring at himself in the mirror for 10 minutes at number 1?
It’s good, but it’s no Sun Kil Moon, am I right?
Just finished it. The second half definitely gets into a darker, funkier groove for a bit, and then the ending three tracks are just a kick. The Door is gonna be a dorm room jam in years to come.
Prayer is just a soup of 70s soul funk jamming.
I love how instruments keep jumping out of the mix. I’m to Back to the Future Part 1 and I’m captivated still.
1000 Deaths = Kid A Funk
Comment party here? It starts out really damn strong. That guitar tone.
To wake up and find this. What a great Sunday. Joanna Newsom announcing she’s working on her new stuff and a new D’angelo song: best week of the year.
D’Angelo might just be snagging that title?
I caught him at the House of Blues in LA two years ago. He played five new songs. If the rest of the stuff is as consistently solid and memorable as those tracks, the album is going to be a motherfucker.
