I gotta admit, this one crept up on me slow. I wasn’t bowled over by the Weyes Blood lead single that preceded the album, but sitting down with it listening to Michael Collins’ tapestry of ’70s smoothness in full, along with contributions from Ariel Pink and Sheer Agony, the bigger picture starts to come into shape. As as single, the Pink featuring track “Easy To Forget” is a definite standout, and the video captures the song’s strange instant classic feeling paired with its almost overbaked, out-of-time vibe. Its the kind of track that would be blaring out of the windows of a beaten to death Cutlass Supreme at four in the afternoon. Its hard not to smile at the imagery and its harder still to deny the smooth swagger that Collins and Pink pull over on this one.
