Chet Faker – Talk Is Cheap
Time for a little celebration! Chet Faker’s debut LP, Built On Glass is out on April 11. And yeah of course it’s on Future Classic.
After the success of Thinking in Textures (released in 2011) and his most recent collaboration with Flume – their Lockjaw EP – Faker is releasing his own full length – recorded in his own studio at home. ‘Honesty is a big part of the record. I recorded with easily affordable equipment, the budget was tiny’, he says quite frankly. But a guy like Chet Faker isn’t the type to get hung up on money or whether there’s FIJI water in his dressing room.
Regardless of cost, this is set to be a solid release. A man with Faker’s talent doesn’t need cash to polish up. His unique lo-fi R&B production, his too-many-fags voice and up front lyrics are his currency. This is the kind of class that money can’t buy.
