Childish Gambino – “Awaken, My Love!”


Childish Gambino - “Awaken, My Love” (Glassnote) 2016


Childish Gambino’s third album, “Awaken, My Love!”, might not illustrate originality in its most pure and conservative form but… who the fucking cares when we have an album like this one? Gambino became a father, took a look back at his father’s record collection and created an album that has immensurable heart and soul. He embraced 70’s soul, funk, R&B, and rock music and carved an album that thrills and astounds at every corner. “Have a word for your brother. Have some time for one another. Really love one another.” Let’s not diminish the value and importance of such words in times like these, especially when they’re wrapped around with such beautiful and touching sonic expressions.
