The new studio album from RJD2, Š—“Dame Fortune,Š—? continues the sonic exploration that was started 14 years ago on his seminal debut Š—“Deadringer.Š—? An entirely self-produced and engineered affair, long-time vocal collaborators appear here: Blueprint, Son Little (aka Aaron Livingston, the other half of the Icebird duo), Phonte Coleman and Jordan Brown, along with newcomer Josh Krajcik (runner up on the 2011 season X-Factor). Always soulful, perpetually psychedelic, this album has found the lost threads connecting Aloe Blacc, Tangerine Dream King Crimson. From the jagged, angular deconstruction of Š—“A New TheoryŠ—? and Š—“The Sheboygan Left,Š—? to the poignant elegance of Š—“Peace of WhatŠ—? and Š—“We Come Alive,Š—? the album Š—“Dame FortuneŠ—? further cements RJD2 as a force to be reckoned with behind the boards.
