One of many 12 months’s most anticipated pop albums is out at present. Harry Kinds has returned with Harry’s Home, his funky, folky, synthetic-organic dispatch from domesticity. Kinds solely shared one music from the album forward of time, the squiggly synth-pop #1 smash “As It Was.” That music shouldn’t be a complete outlier on Harry’s Home, however the album is eclectic sufficient to embody the brass-blasted, light-as-air ’80s adult-contemporary funk providing “Music For A Sushi Restaurant” and the lysergic ballad “Little Freak.” There are many references to meals, typically metaphorical and typically fairly literal. Hey, when “Watermelon Sugar” takes you to the highest, you follow what works.
