Chet Faker – Built On Glass

After several singles and EPs over the past couple of years, the Melbourne prince of downbeat electronica is releasing his first full-length album, Built on Glass.

An eclectic affair melding R&B with pop melodies; blues and soul with electronica, the album is a paean to Faker’s diverse musical interests but retains coherence throughout, held together by his EDM sensibilities and distinctive raspy voice.

Choice cuts include the sinuous and sexy Talk Is Cheap (the music video is a must-see, by the way), Gold – a cinematic ballad studded with falsetto vocals, and the sonically experimental Blush.  (PH)
