Chet Faker - Grateful Grapefruit 2

I know now would be the right time to review the new Woodkid album, but I have been so preoccupied with other much mor thrilling and intense feelings towards another bearded talent that I even forgot about The Golden Age after it leaked 3 or 4 days before release.

Chet Faker - Grateful Grapefruit 3

 

Chet Faker, born Nicholas James Murphy is an Australian electronica musician who’s able not only to provide the best music for making out, but also breathe new life into mellow electronica. He was got his degree at St Kevin’s College. In 2012 he signed to Downtown Records and issued an extended LP, Thinking in Textures. In October 2012 he won ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ and Thinking in Textures won ‘Best Independent Single/EP’ at the Australian Independent Records Awards. In January this year the work won ‘Best Independent Release’ at the Rolling Stone Australia Awards for 2012. And this seems to be just the beginning for an aspiring 22 (?) year-old velvet-voiced talent.
