MUSIC: Arthur & Yu

Got the new album by Arthur & Yu in the mail over the weekend (which I ordered from the newly launched Hardly Art record label) and was able to fully digest it in the last 24 hours. It's a romantic and fuzzy album, creating an intimate space for the listener; it's also surprisingly forceful for one reason or another, as repeated listens increased the sound's gravity. While that last sentence is long, confusing, and quite obtuse, it's the only way I could accurately describe how the album made me feel. Guess all you need to know is this: It's good. Cue the track.

::: Arthur & Yu - Come to View (Song for Neil Young)

You can buy their debut LP on Hardly Art, titled In Camera, over at the label's website.
