Rain Dogs isn't for everyone, but if you want to hear what the roots of an urban jungle sound like - in all their sad and messy madness - it's well worth a listen.
Brimming with catchy vocal hooks and harmonious moments, Something Blue is a pleasant record, but its production leaves much to be desired.
Hushed, husky Turner monologues drift over sophisticated arrangements with retro sheens. The album basks in the seedy buzz of a make-believe underworld.
It's quite the fusion of sounds, and huge credit goes to Rumerio for creating something so distinctive. It's rather captivating, truth be told.
