In the five (five!) years since his cracking debut LP System dropped, the type of music Linkwood excelled at – a meld of sun-kissed house and loping LA funkiness – has become widespread, and perhaps even played out. So the decision to furrow a different path on forthcoming sophomore Expressions (due next week on Firecracker) makes perfect sense.
That being said, the warm tones prove hard to shake, and the precision of craft never truly goes away. What begins as straight techno chugger in the vein of The Field circa ’07 gradually emerges from its tunnel into bright daylight. It’s a coy move, us premiering this one: “Object” is a bridge. But coming from, and going to where? We’ve waited half a decade – one week more won’t hurt.
