Our take

by Angus

More a companion–piece mixtape to 2018’s ‘Negro Swan’ than an outright album, Angel’s Pulse scans as a series of vignettes to accompany the aforementioned album, to bookend it with a degree of hope. It’s the sound of the lived events of a thirty–something gay black man living in modern day America, his thoughts, emotions and experiences laid out against a musical backdrop of modern R&B and neo–soul.

There’s also laments for friends passed and ruminations on a presently ultra–political America. But chiefly, Angel’s Pulse stands as a collection of sketches recorded all around the world, and that’s exactly how it sounds. It’s not intended to be especially cohesive but more like a 32 minute series of diary entries, a look inside Devonte Hynes’ mind.

Since many of our visitors are at the beginning of their vinyl voyage, we thought it'd be helpful to have a starter's compass.
