About this deal

His full length debut on Daptone Records is equal parts raw feeling and elegance and exudes confidence and charm. That said, there is a lot of space here, lots of room between the instruments and you can follow each instrument through all of its parts, except where it all gets real heavy and layered, but that was not likely the band's goal in those passages, and it might be one of vinyl's few weaknesses anyway. If you want to demonstrate how good vinyl can sound, play Side C of this record - Reckoner and House Of Cards both sound absolutely phenomenal. In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing Jalen perform live knows that he is one of the most captivating performers on today's soul scene.The first thing I notice in this rendering more than I ever noticed in any before, is the way that Tom's vocals weave in and out of the soundscape. That would be an understatement if I said that I was completely blow away by the sound and overall quality of this release.

It does sound more quintessentially 'analogue', but in the literal definition of high fidelity, it seems coloured and lacking somewhat. Somehow I bought this fantastic album back around 2010, opened it up and looked at the pretty art, but then didn't get around to listening to it until today. The bass is tight, melodic and quite dynamic, but a bit light (just notch the sub or EQ up a bit to your liking). The only thing that's different is that this 45rpm issue has a terrible pressing defect on "All I Need" and it's cut a fair bit louder (which probably tricks a lot of people into thinking it's better).More minimal that their "Kid A" period, "In Rainbows" does something that very few albums have done - its sound is distinct from previous Radiohead albums, but is still clearly Radiohead. Previous experiments bleed all over the album, warped electronics, brazen hooks and maudlin melodies while Yorke turns the screw on the human psyche.
