This installment of Tune Of The Week is a new piece by an old favourite. I heard Fink’s “Warm Shadow” while watching AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ and it reminded me that I forgot to buy Fink’s fourth album Perfect Darkness, a situation which has since been remedied.
Fink – Warm Shadow
It’s quite fitting for Warm Shadow to be featured as this week’s selection; Fink’s emotionally raw “This is the thing” was the first record chosen as the Tune Of The Week when I started this segment in 2010, and I still consider ‘Pretty Little Thing’ one of the sexiest songs in my collection.
More great music from Fink. I’ve been listening to his music more and I’ve been digging it more and more. To the point it seems where I’m unable to construct a decent sentence without using the word more, anymore.
Anyway. ‘This Is The Thing’ is taken off the album ‘Distance and Time’ available on Ninja Tune.
All three of the new tracks have a more polished sound than the band’s earlier material and also contains much more of a vocal presence than previous material. Of the three, “Breathe” retains the most of the classic Cinematic Sound which we’ve come to know and love.
Fans on ilike have applauded the band’s decision to make the full MP3 available for listening on the popular music fan site (as oppose to 30second sound clips which many artists list).
