The Russian Futurists Our Thickness
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Upper Class
Canadian Matthew Adam Hart (a.k.a. The Russian Futurists) comes from a proud lineage of monomaniacal, solitary pop geniuses, locked in their bedrooms cranking out unique and perfect hooks. Like his forebears-Andy Partridge, Brian Wilson, Stephin Merritt-Hart seems to have a bottomless barrel of sing-a-longs like "Hurtin‘ 4 Certain" and "Paul Simon," which set face-in-hands lyrics against sunny day psych tunes. Hart‘s songs come crammed through with cheap synths and crackling drum machines, helping make his third album, Our Thickness, one of the more subtle revolutions in classic pop‘s recent history.
