Boomkat Product Review:
Cultishly adored singer/songwriter Sandro Perri (Polmo Polpo) saddles up a dream of an album with ‘Soft Landing’ for his spiritual home at Constellation
Issued only a year since his ‘In Another Life’ album, he makes up for lost time (which, to be fair, was filed with two Off World LPs) in a deliciously gentle, rustic collection of songs brimming with that slow burn soul that’s kept us and many others coming back to his recordings over the past 20 years - if you haven’t heard his Polmo Polpo take on Arthur Russell’s ‘Kiss Me Again’ you haven’t lived, basically.
Just like his legendary take on ‘Kiss Me Again’, Perri applies that chronic magic to the opener of his new album with ‘Time (You Got Me)’ for 16 minutes of sunset strolling country folk that feels like a time lapse of hundreds of years in half the actual track length. Go figure. The rest of the album however is packed into relatively shorter songs, drifting from the balmy to psychedelic instrumental ‘Floriana’ to the soul gloop of ‘God Blessed The Fool’ and ornate acoustic guitar embellishments of ‘Back On Love’, before coaxing out the freckled ‘70s funk of ‘Wrong About The Rain’ and supplying a trusty closer with Fleetwood Mac winks of ’Soft Landing.’
