Luke Top Suspect Highs on Limited Edition 45RPM LP
Luke Top is best known for being the singer and co-founder of Fool's Gold, a band that has enjoyed international acclaim for their unique blend of African dance music and New Wave pop stylings since 2009. He's also been a frequent touring member/musical collaborator of artists such as Papercuts, Cass McCombs, and ADLT VDEO. Suspect Highs is a step inward for the songwriter, resulting in his most personal collection of songs to date.
It was self-produced during a period of relative isolation after several years of touring and being in bands full time. The sound of the album itself is somehow familiar, yet can't be ascribed to any particular era. There are subtle parallels to the world music touchstones of Fool's Gold, but the music stands alone as something wholly new; a singular offering of intimately spun chamber-pop, constructed with lush arrangements and topped with Luke's trademark melismatic croon.
Limited edition 12" vinyl press mastered at 45RPM for the best possible listening experience.
