#507 Ruu Campbell – Crossroads

Oh lord, this is a bit special. Ruu Campbell, the former Leftfield vocalist, is doing something special, with shades of Jose Gonzalez and a touch of Grey Reverend…but mostly a sound all of his own. Brooding, intricate and utterly transfixing, this is a wonderful introduction to his upcoming debut album Heartsong, which is out next month. Campbell says: “I’m so happy now in the sound palette I’m in now, which is essentially woody and acoustic. I want to share beauty with you as a listener, and I’m so happy that I can do it.” We’re happy too. More please.
