The ranch dressing of music blogs by Brady Gerber.

Nick Schofield on Bandcamp.

Rating: 3.5 out of 4.

Looks like someone stole the synths from Uncut Gems and made better music. This song is beautiful. Nick Schofield makes me feel like I’m in Paris in 1934 and 2034. Puts me in the same headspace as when I reviewed Benny Bock’s wonderful solo album for Pitchfork. Those two should collaborate or at least hangout and exchange flowers and bass pedals or something. It’s amazing how a song with such little movements or changes can put you in a trance. It’s a dream. It’s a daydream about dreaming kind of feeling. Someone put this in your French film trailer and win an Oscar while eating some pastry for goodness sake. Was the director for this music music like OK how about you just look at me and through me for five hours straight and we’ll keep the best parts OK great.
