Digging "Ancestors" at the mo.
He sounds like someone's got Jeanne Calment to do buckets.
Yeah it really is. Amazing album, a real slow-burner. I think it's one of my favourites of the year so far...
Think it might be my favourite so far this year... although the new adebisi shank is fast growing on me...
I'm still discovering more to his album. Definitely falls into the category never-ceases-to-amaze-me
Can't wait for the gig on 6th September.
And Ancestors is my favorite track on there I think. When I think if "grower" albums in the future, I think I will always site Sufi and a Killer as my point of reference.
Kind of. First few listens, I thought "Ooh, there's some interesting stuff going on here", so I gave it a few more listens, but as the intrigue wore away, I realised there wasn't an awful lot of substance.
you should listen to it even more. The substance is there.
I just don't think the songwriting, for the most part, is strong enough to do justice to his aesthetic ideas.
Havent really paid attention much to the lyrics to be honest as I'm not usually a lyrics guy. I just find the whole overall vibe of the album extremely refreshing.
I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as when I first heard it.
There something intriguing about it, yes its alright... But if flying lotus and gaslamp killer endorsed a fart it would sell and every one would be going 'ohh its wicked how that one is loud and that one is quiet.'
its just a great album.
