Debby Friday - Good Luck (Metallic Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
The supernovic full-length debut of Nigerian-born, Canadian emigré recording artist Debby Friday. The usual boom-and-bust cycles of growing up - breaking down, gathering the strength to get up, fumbling hard, doing it all over again - can feel unmooring, to say the least, but according to Friday, its tragedies and glories need savouring. Losing illusions, gaining expectations; getting deep into the private, soupy kaleidoscope of what’s possible and what’s futile: Good Luck is built on welcoming the journey’s complicated drops and mountain highs with something more like grace.
It’s why Good Luck works like such a study in entropy. On the surface, you’ll hear hints of Santigold’s dub dazzle, the MIDI-crush of Death Grips, but less obviously the plaintiveness of directors like Eric Rohmer, or the grotesque decadence of later-era Sylvia Plath. Standouts include lucid, acid-housey, “I Got It" (accompanied by Chris Vargas of Pelada / Uñas), the crushing "Let U Down" and the assured lead single “So Hard To Tell”.
