RIYL: Surfboard Stevens

Label: Asthmatic Kitty

A heads up before you read any more (if you’re even reading this…), there’s only 28 copies of this left according to Asthmatic Kitty and who knows how many more are left at the moment. It’s Asthmatic Kitty, though, so I’m sure they’ll be gone before the weekend at the very least. Angelo De Augustine is like Sufjan Stevens’ spiritual brother. Going off this single alone, you’ll unavoidably be reminded of early Sufjan especially considering the label it’s been released on. However, if you crave for Sufjan to head back that route, and you’re not holding your breath, Angelo De Augustine is a fine replacement. For a measly $7, you’ll have something that’ll probably be sought after not too long from now. Angelo De Augustine’s got everything going for him, from aesthete, to his gossamer timbre, to his easy going composition. Listen to “Truly Gone” below via the YouTube video and see what you think of it. Cheers!
