Review: A Thousand Years – Farmers in Fields of Stars


Originally posted on Schitz Popinov

A Thousand Years has produced what may be the most broad genre encompassing record of the year; Farmers in Fields of Stars. Leaned out progressive R&B is most likely the most accurate way to verbally convey the overall sound of this record.

From beginning to end one experiences a feeling of uncertainty as to what is going to leak into your ear and from what corner of your memory one is going to reminisce with next. To say that this record is a nostalgia trigger is an understatement, however a more judicious expression is out of grasp at this time. I feel as though Zeké Africa’s father’s Jazz background, and probable influence, has had a significant bearing on A Thousand Years style as it is today. There is an uncanny progression from track to track that continues throughout the debut EP of the London based artist which must stem from Jazz.
