faltydl - Hardcourage (Album)
Drew Lustman weighs in his loved-up and lush third LP, arriving via Ninja Tune. The emphasis is firmly on house and romantic soul music here, as opposed to the fragmented kaleidoscope of jungle, R&B, and garage that made up its predecessors. That's largely attributable to the fact he fell in love during the creation of 'Hardcourage', which would definitely explain its aerated giddiness and almost pop-wise swerve. It's even got vocals, thanks to a very tidy cameo from Friendly Fires Ed Macfarlane on the bumping sophistication of 'She Sleeps', while the hook-heavy single 'Straight & Arrow' is the kind of groove your mother and your brother could easily get down with. But it's really in the 2nd half of the record that Lustman's affected instrumental emotions really come to the fore, from the shimmering jazz flutters of 'Finally Some Shit/The Rain Stopped' to the three feet high bump-and-tingle of 'Kenny Rolls One', in the barely controlled flightiness of 'Korben Dallas' and the sweeping neo-classical sensitivities of 'Bells'.
