Listening Post: Fink
Fink is the stage name of British singer-songwriter-DJ-producer Fin Greenall. With that kind of hyphenate you'd think his music would be overly complex, but actually Fink's best stuff is stripped down and deeply personal. He's collaborated with John Legend, Banks and Amy Winehouse in the past, but his solo material is where it's really obvious what he's capable of.
His most recent album, Hard Believer, is a current favorite of mine and when you hear the first couple of singles from it you'll understand why.
First up, it's a song that could easily be a lost track from Radiohead's OK Computer. This is Pilgrim.
And here's Looking Too Closely.
