City Slicker by Ginger Root
On his 5th studio album City Slicker, Ginger Root synthesizes influences ranging from Japanese films to genres such as Philly Soul to create a bedroom pop masterpiece. While reminiscent of contemporaries like Mild High Club and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ginger Root’s sound is uniquely his own. With some describing his sound as “aggressive elevator soul,” City Slicker feels like a ride through Ginger Root's carefully layered soundscape of synths, horns, and reverb.
