Chester Whelks This album showered a flourish of candy coloured kisses onto my auditory cortex. It manages the enviable task of reconciling the worst of human emotion and experience with the greatest of them, while being a celebration of music itself. Bill would be proud. Favorite track: Chanteuse Raison d'etre.
