Natureboy – Natureboy (2009/2010)

I am SO bad at being a blogmaster. I swear, it takes months for me to remember to post things, and it’s usually because some lovely person bothers to comment. I’ll work on it, guys. We can work it out.

This is worth me telling you about, though. Sara Kermanshahi is an Iranian New Yorker, and she made and self-released this wonderful album under the name Natureboy, which is now seeing wider release through Own Records, one of the better labels presently operating (and home to Gregor Samsa, Firekites, Charge Group and S.) It’s a hazy and beautiful thing, a marvelous drifting folksy echo. It’s not so surprising to find out that her collaborators for this record are synth experimentalists Masterface – it treads a fine line at points, the same way For Emma, Forever Ago did (albeit in a more restrained way). I haven’t wanted to listen to much else lately. That never happens.
