John Talabot – Destiny feat. Pional
John Talabot’s rich sound is chameleonic–play it while stumbling home at 3am; play it on a lonely Sunday morning in your room; play it at a club on a night where you’ve forgotten your own name–somehow Talabot’s hypnotic mix will seem more than uncannily fitting, but perfect. On “Destiny” he teams up with producer Pional and the result is a track that is both cripplingly dark and hopefully celebratory. Talabot’s debut album, ƒin, demonstrates his fluency in a variety of genre’s, but most importantly, it feels utterly fresh despite its tendency to play with the retro and nostalgic.
