James Fauntleroy - Mo’nin

Happy Perez
The Coldest Summer Ever

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.
