'christopher' is an album about starting over, but not necessarily moving forward. it's a breakup album, but as one listen will tell you, not necessarily a sad one. it's mcphun's fourth record for memphis industries, third for sub pop and first mixed by an a-list engineer: chris coady of beach house, grizzly bear, gang gang dance and a zillion more. mcphun spent two weeks at coady's studio in new york. together they polished christopher to an opalescent sheen, yielding the kind of expensive-sounding, future-leaning ear candy typically in the province of top 40 radio. mcphun makes his own brand of pop - accessible and unconventional, ethereal and concise, modern and timeless. in that regard, 'christopher' is miles beyond previous ruby suns records - a high-fi, meta-disco, headphonic roller-skating jam for lovers written and recorded over the course of several years, several world tours and several separate bands.
