11 Songs, 1 Hour

EDITORS’ NOTES

Arguably, many of the best songwriters hit points in their careers where their songs evolve from crafted introspection into a more metaphysical space; they're no longer simply exposing their own truths but creating spaces that listeners can also inhabit. On his fifth album, Perfect Darkness, Fink lives this evolution; the result is a record that's simultaneously personal and universal. Appropriately, Perfect Darkness is the first of Fink's songwriting records to not feature his face on the cover. Instead, an abstract cube on its edge floats in space. This loss of ego is present in the songwriting as well, perhaps due to the new writing process, which was driven by post-performance soundscape jamming with his band. The title track was born from parts of one of these jams—a hypnotic backing based on one guitar riff and sparse percussion. This is Fink at his most emotive and affected, enjoying his evolution and acting as a conduit rather than just a performer.

Beautiful

This is a beautiful album from an amazing artist. It was worth the wait, and it does not disappoint. You can feel that Fin has put himself fully into all the tracks. It has a live feel to it, and you can feel his passion for the music come through.

Heard this on house. Downloaded it immediately. Reminds me a little bit of Jeffrey Gaines. I will definitely listen to more of Fink now.
