D’Angelo and the Vanguard


Fourteen years after his last album, the R&B star returns with a warm, expansive masterpiece. Here’s to messiahs worth waiting for. D’Angelo has kept the world fiending 14 years for the follow-up to his Crisco-thick R&B classic, Voodoo, but as the man himself purrs in “Sugah Daddy,” “Can’t snatch the meat out of the lioness’ mouth/Sometimes you gotta just ease it out.” Black Messiah shows how deep easy can go. D’Angelo and his band have built an avant-soul dream palace to get lost in, for 56 minutes of heaven. [via rollingstone]

The musicologist’s words for today is ,”Not watch but LISTEN. Listen to the cool, unique, and genius sounds of John Fruciante”.  John said that, “Letur-Lefr signifies the transition of two becoming one, notably symbolized by the first song on the album being the sequel to the album’s last.” The four words linked on the album cover describe Fruciante’s creative process. His creative process was nothing short but brilliant. LETUR-LEFR is one of the best EP’s Musicologistblog has heard this year and it is definitely worth purchasing. John’s eleventh studio album PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone will be available worldwide on September 24, 2012. To find out more about John Frusciante and his music check out this link: johnfrusciante.com
