Child­ish Gam­bino, “Awaken, My Love!”

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

First, he was a co­me­dian, Then, he was a rap­per. Now, Child­ish Gam­bino (real name Don­ald Glover) has found another le­git­i­mate muse in funk. His lat­est is a swel­ter­ing bolt of Bill With­ers-era groove. “Have Some Love” is the al­bum at its eas­i­est to love, the sort of P-Funk send-up that makes a club out of a morgue. Songs like “Red­bone” is where the real meat is, though: A min­i­mal­ist and woozy ex­am­i­na­tion of love as an elu­sive cu­ra­tive. A late but con­vinc­ing en­try into your best-of-the-year list. — Dy­lan Owens
