New Cornelius: “Sometime / Someplace”

If “If You’re Here” found Cornelius reflecting and letting his music wander, “Sometime / Someplace” pivots back…at least partially…to the synchronization of Sensuous. Here, every sound is locked in, and even the syllables coming out of Cornelius’ mouth work in a sort of lock-step. He’s still leaning towards something more melancholy than on his previous solo efforts with the lyrics, but hearing them fall in place with measured-out acoustic guitar strums and snippets of sounds distracts. Which isn’t to say he’s reeled himself in. Everything goes along fine until a big electric guitar solo enters and tears all the order to shreds, offering a nice dose of chaos and throwing it off center. Listen above.
