Chet Faker/Pablo Amor/Johnny La Rock & Furface 

When: Sat., Aug. 30, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $14 ADV, $16 DOS
In certain circles of the music criticism game, Chet Faker’s been getting enough glowing praise that it wouldn’t be out of line to assume that Built on Glass isn’t his debut album, that maybe this cat’s been around long enough to have a nice, established rep. But it is: This is Faker’s first album, and it’s a good one. Faker’s downtempo electronic soul sound weaves through a number of incarnations on this album, and the interlude “/” divides Built into two distinct sides. The first frame features twilit Rhodes-driven beats that evoke foggy self-reflection. The number of instruments at play on “Talk is Cheap,” for instance, show off Faker’s clear interest in a wide gamut of musical styles (and that crooning saxophone!). Side B gets weirder. Go forth and discover this Australian import that you’ll surely be hearing more in the months and years to come. (Sandy)
