Another round of stunning instrumentals from Adrian Younge. By now you should be famililar with multi-instrumentalist/producer who's brilliant analog production work has been likened to that of Ennio Morricone and even the Beatles. Similar to the first Something About April, the tracks here are composed of gritty cinematic elements and vintage soul with a hip-hop breakbeat aesthetic in mind. Like we said before, Younge's music is at the same time soulful and heavy, dark and psychedelic, and just plain awesome. It's no wonder heavyweights like DJ Premier, Jay-Z, Common, and others have been sampling his work - but the truth is that all these tracks stand tall without the need of vocalists as the music speaks for itself. Highlights include "Sittin' By The Radio," "Winter Is Here," "La Ballade," "Magic Music," "Hear My Love," and more. Recommended.
