Kwes – ‘Rollerblades’

Get your skates, Kwes, you’ve pulled

If I tried to chat someone up by singing “Your eyes say to me/Come rollerblade with me”, I’d get nowhere. Kwes, however, is cooler, so it works. This, the follow-up to his Warp debut ‘Meantime’, is gorgeous and idiosyncratic. Plus there’s a bit that sounds almost exactly like Sam Cooke’s ‘Wonderful World’. Get your skates, Kwes, you’ve pulled.
