Music Monday (sort of): Chet Faker
Yes, I realize it is definitely Wednesday and I failed to update on my 'Music Monday.' But, you know what they say, better late than never, which is the exact phrase I am going to use to describe my late love for Chet Faker. I feel like everyone has been talking about this dude for quite some time, but I just never got around to listening. Oh boy, when I finally did ... I sure was missing a lot!
His voice is really soulful. Similar to the sounds of James Blake, James Vincent McMorrow, Jamie Woon, How to Dress Well etc. However, Faker definitely has his own style which should be noted. His album "Built on Glass" which came out mid-April has a bit of jazz to it, and jazzy is good. "Talk is Cheap" and "Release Your Problems" are probably my favorite tracks to listen to. So, go listen!
