Franklin Thompson - Anniversary b/w Thinking Impaired (7")

Record Label: Stones Throw

Recently unearthed by soothseeing label boss and card-carrying time traveler Peanut Butter Wolf, Stones Throw’s new 7” release from Franklin Thompson con- tinues where Planet Jumper left off: synthesizer-heavy, electro R&B that rightly elevates Thompson’s unsung status to the “damn shame” hall of fame. Collectors and 80’s aesthetes will revel in Thompson’s virtuoso-as-outsider mythology while contemporary fans of Dam Funk and Arabian Prince will make their turntables happy with Thompson’s preternaturally strong melodies, ass-friendly grooves, and idiosyncratic singing voice. The “Anniversary b/w Thinking Impaired” 45 is, above all, another exciting step in Stones Throw’s ongoing commitment to give recognition to pop music’s most criminal omissions. Don’t sleep.
