Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar
Their latest album is Cocoa Sugar, 12 tautly-constructed tracks offering both experimental and more traditionally linear songs. The quality is high and consistent, and the performances confident. The band seamlessly combines surreal imagery with rapid-fire verses and sweet, almost euphoric choruses that dispel the tension. I've been a fan since stumbling on their first EPs years ago -- this is their best work yet and probably will be one of my favorite albums this year.
Cocoa Sugar is out today via Ninja Tune
