Deru Pushing Air

So, this new Massive Attack album is quite different...oops, this isn't the new Massive Attack. But maybe it should be, as resonantly hip-hop as its beats are, as soupy and atmospheric as its backing textures feel, and with its few wisps of a woman's voice on "Din." Actually, it's one man, LA-based Ben Wynn, and Pushing Air falls into that warm, cozy nook that Neo Ouija's been prepping for the last three or four years, the one that's now draped in the easy rolling melodies of Deru and pillowed with the plush quietude of "Playground" and the rasp of "Soulik" in your ears. All you need now is a sunbeam.
