Chet Faker - Talk Is Cheap

4/08/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Firstly, I would like to pay homage to Chet Faker's seemingly natural ombre facial hair. Who knew it was possible to possess both espresso locks and a fiery ginger beard? Also, besides mocking his hipster lumberjack appearance, we will discuss his new song "Talk Is Cheap." Props Chet Faker on your production. Even sans Flume, you manage to impress me. There's some pleasant "hold-plz" sax music, wind instruments of some sort, and of course, (the ever-expanding and convoluted term) SYNTHS. Honestly, if I can't name the sound it will be called a synth. So sry. Besides that, I'm having some problems with the lyrics. Does this man have Tourettes? There is no other explanation for the lines, "You're a mouthful / Now I'm a novel made resourceful" Just...wut. Debut album "Built on Glass" out this month
