Albert Hammond, Jr. has unleashed his hallucinatory and mesmerizing video for his leading track, Born Slippy, off of his yet-to-be-released album Momentary Masters.
I’ve re-watched the Born Slippy video at least four or five times now. That’s how magnetic it is but it’s also very trippy and kaleidoscopic which adds to the appeal. The video was directed by the insanely talented Justyna Hammond Jr. Watch below.
Born Slippy has been on repeat for me since its release. That contagious intro beat and you can’t forget about those guitar riffs. The interplaying of stellar riffs, killer drum beats, and stupefying bass line are infused with Albert’s soaring vocals. Al sounds the best he ever has and his musical evolution has been a blazing one. Red is synonymous with Albert Hammond, Jr. which I think is the perfect incendiary color to describe him.
Momentary Masters is AHJ’s third solo album that has been a long time coming. 2006 had Yours to Keep and 2008 had ¿Cómo Te Llama? while 2013 had the AHJ, one of the best EP’s (and music) of the year. I’m looking forward to this album and give it a proper review later. Make sure to catch Albert on tour, tickets are on sale now.
You can pre-order Momentary Masters via iTunes now, Born Slippy is already available to purchase.
The most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home.
I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable.
I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces.
Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures.
