“Songs In the Key of An­i­mals”

MERGE - AVAIL­ABLE NOW!

The al­bum has a sum­mer­time im­me­di­acy but an ev­er­green res­o­nance. It’s clever but too deep for punch­lines. It’s ec­cen­tric but never forced in its strange­ness. It’s the kind of record that re­minds us mu­sic can be fun with­out be­ing empty. It’s an al­bum full of pea­cocks and sharks and ze­bras and tigers, but ul­ti­mately, it’s about us. Songs in the Key of An­i­mals taps into some­thing be­yond just in­tel­lect or trend or taste. It’s all about the feel, the con­nec­tion be­tween the player, the mu­sic, and the lis­tener.
