A real grower as well.
i'd be very surprised if it wasn't in my top 5 albums at the end of the year, does for me what bike for three did last year, particularly like the slow tracks like sheep and holidays but its all good
what everyone else has said - fucking great album.
wasn't overly impressed after a few streams but I want to keep going back to it as I love all the people involved and when I heard a few tracks on the Brainfeeder radio show the other night they sounded quality in the mix.
because it's a great, great record.
Seems to have a track for every mood, anyone agree?
with this chap and all involved...plus he's a Yoga teacher to boot, I hear. The production is strangely interesting highly addictive. He's supporting Gil Scott Heron in Rome had hoped he might support him whilst he's over here, seemingly those shows are cancelled today, no? (GSH shows I mean)..Yay for those who have heard the album, I was a little miffed there was nothing on DIS about Gonjasufi.
he writes for us too: http://sonicrouter.blogspot.com/ haha ;)
I put it in the search engine & Nada came up, my bad..Good.
unless you know its acctualy there and you can dig it out.
I only remembered as its ou r bwoy! doing it ahah
It's more like a 9 :(
EASTERN DREAMS DRIVIN ME INSANE.
.. and I bought the album. I have not listened to it as much as I should have since then (just need to really take it in).
I love something new about it everytime i hear it. Current fav is Duet which reminds me of TVOTR.
It's bloody brilliant. Probably the best album I've heard this year. The only problem I'm having with the album is that I think I'm enjoying Gaslamp Killer's contribution a lot more than Gonjasufi's. Don't get me wrong, Gonjasufi comes out with some gems like "You have perfect timing" on 'Duet', which in the context of the track sounds like an absolute revelation, but it's Gaslamp Killer's beats that make the album what it is (FlyLo & Mainframe's are great, too). With that said, I'm sure Gonjasufi had a hand in crafting the instrumental side of the album as well since he is credited as co-producer.
I really really love the production and Gaslamp's stuff in general. But Gonjasufi could sing the phonebook and it'd still sound like some of the filthiest lyrics ever written...
But yeah, album of the year almost. That's still FlyLo for me until James Blake gets an album out. It pushes it damn close though...
Should refresh any minute now.
