Running Back, 2017
I read a couple of reviews about this album before going in and most of them said I would be surprised. I listened to a couple of Tornado Wallace records back in 2012 and 2013 that were definitely more house and disco oriented, especially that Bit 1 song that I quite enjoyed. Now I’m not a Mr. Wallace scholar but I’m thinking this is the first time he’s produced something like this(maybe not).
«Lonely Planet» was indeed a surprising and refreshing listen: a tribal-balearic soundtrack from start to finish with hints of liquid guitars and warm bass lines. The highlight of the entire album lays on an 9-minute track song(Voices) that is fucking fantastic. Can’t wait to listen to this on wax during the summer in the comfort of my air conditioned bedroom and away from the sun.
