John Cale | DS046
John Cale's forever ready to jump off the edge and take everyone with him. Extra Playful leaps from Pop's edge with glee, freewheeling through springy beats, snaking, shonky guitar lines and zones of exciting texture that gesture to Cale's role as a master producer. His lyrics veer from richly poetic to extra playful, at times it's as though he's having a little word in your ear, which is welcome from a voice as charming and smart as he is here. He's asking you to have fun with him and who can say no when he's offering whimsical art rock this fine, beguiling and invigorating.
