James Fauntleroy - Mo’nin
You wouldn’t be able to tell from the muggy weather outside, but this is shaping up to be The Coldest Summer Ever. And, you know what? I actually don’t mind shivering through August, if it means I get to enjoy some new music from James Fauntleroy. The newly-released Mo’nin isn’t slated to appear on the artist’s forthcoming set, but it does offer a taste of the chilliness in store. Here, a minimal Happy Perez beat accompanies the Inglewood crooner as he celebrates the simple pleasures of early-AM lovemaking. The theme may be an old one, but Fauntleroy’s distinctive vocal harmonies and spare guitar chords imbue the record with a unique, haunting appeal. If this loosie’s whet your appetite for more, keep it locked for further details on the aforementioned Coldest Summer, which is currently unscheduled.
