Oh fuck yeah. Dustin Wong's last album 'Infinite Love' is easily one of my most played records of recent years so I'm unsurprisingly chuffed that his new one's turned up in the office today. If you're not familiar with his work, Wong utilises a guitar and a massive array of pedals to sculpt deft loop monoliths with bright tones and shimmering grooves. Formerly of Ponytail and Ecstatic Sunshine, his playing technique is an absolute delight, with an upbeat virtuosic fluidity paired with a lightness of touch and melodic instinct that make for consistently mind-expanding recordings, as the melodies and grooves gradually unfold and reveal themselves to you in different ways. Tone-wise he's certainly painting from the same palette here as he did on 'Infinite Love', and it's very hard at this early stage for me to say with any confidence how the tunes compare because this album simply hasn't had the chance to burn itself into my subconscious like that one has. What I can say, though, is that the tones and melodies are sublime and this is simply another LP of unadulterated pleasure from one of the true treasures of our musical landscape. We should feel privileged to coexist with musicians like Dustin Wong, he's an absolute treasure and once again he's produced an album of timeless, transcendent beauty and warmth that makes me feel alive and happy and comfortable and couldn't possibly have been made by anybody else. To call this man a genius isn't hyperbole, it's just being realistic.
