It's finally here! So here's our first impression...
The music on this LP is reminiscent of Nicolas Jaar-type
material, which is not very surprising
considering mst was released on Jaar's Clown
& Sunset label.
The way the sounds distort and reverberate, the way the vocals
intermittently come in and out, the so called "muddiness" of the
production - it all combines superbly.
The man is 55. Producing this kind of music is a wonder that has
to be embraced by the old fans and discovered by the young
What you have here is some very enjoyable, well constructed,
witty at times, hook-laden at others, good old fashioned yet at the
same time tailor-made-for-2013 rock music.
On this high production value LP, Kendrick opts for issues
that are close to his heart and is able to deliver them with giant
sized dollops of panache and lyrical dexterity.
Arpeggios of pure gold flowing in your ears, that's the kind of
sensation you'll have when discovering this album.
New Order, synths, garage rock, surf guitars, Britpop, there is
a bit of everything in this hybrid, mostly upbeat record.
