i have a special relationship with magenta skycode which without a doubt distorts my perspective when evaluating the band. from listening to the work of jori for years, hearing the first demos of IIIII at a random party to the full, final release – which i still consider one of the best debut albums of the decade – i had great expectations for his second album.
the album is more accessible than his debut, and his internal artistic strength is more graspable from his singing even if the man himself is rather shy in person. simply put, the talent is inescapable.
the song below is not my favorite from the album, but the video is too cute to pass. it is a collection of clips from the early days of jori's new cat, lurppa; a story of her arrival to the new home and meeting the royalty, guru.
the perfect fall record.
