Double Black Vinyl
Much of V I N C E N T is wilfully romantic, sometimes super sexy, and often with its head in the clouds, as on tracks like Us, a dreamy ode to his wife, June, or IHM, which has a 90s hip-hop flavour slowed right down to lights-out tempo. Not entirely a solo record, ((( O )))) appears on Brass Necklace – which has the soft power of The Internet and Stevie Wonder's keys. It's no wonder that lead single A Moment of Mystery, featuring Toro Y Moi, has a spacey vibe: while recording in San Francisco together, FKJ, Toro and his keyboard player Tony took some of what Tony called "holy water" – "we shared this bottle and took a bit of a trip," laughs FKJ. The result is a gentle electronic ode to long-term love that could rival Tame Impala for melodic progginess.
