Adrian Younge Something About April II Album Tracklist
In the four years since the arrival of Something About April, Adrian Younge has been instituted America’s dark virtuoso: the summoning of simple remnant in an advanced time. His grand music has earned him worship, compared to Ennio Morricone’s best work and the Beatles’ industriousness to make new sounds. Making a permanent impact on advanced vinyl heads and makers alike (having been inspected by DJ Premier, Jay-Z, Common, 50 Cent) the Something About April brand is an adage to the cutting edge “Breakbeat,” and Linear Labs is glad to declare its successor: Something About April II. Recorded with a gathering of uncommon instruments, Something About April II advances Younge’s musical worldview with ambitious ideas, and more fantastic arrangements, integrating the limits between dim American soul, and excellent European silver screen. This most recent discharge highlights a variety of spellbinding vocalists: Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) and Bilal, perform two part harmonies on “Step Beyond” and “La Ballade,” reminiscent of two part harmonies from Serge Gainsborg and Jane Birkin; Raphael Saadiq mixes “Dark Jazz” vocals with hallucinogenic soul on “Enchantment Music,” while Israeli star, Karolina, conveys frequenting serenades over concertos like “Hear my adoration” and “Winter arrives.” Long time Adrian Younge teammate Loren Oden murmurs as though the obvious apparition of Donnie Hathaway made one final affection melody with Sandrine and Sittin’ by the Radio.
