Wondaland Presents: The Eephus – EP

“Wondaland [Records] is a magic place,” says Nate Wonder of funk-folk duo Deep Cotton at the beginning of a short film, Wondaland: Welcome to the Future, about the label of which he speaks. “It’s a place where you can tell stories in unforgettable ways.”

The five-part documentary about Janelle Monáe’s bastion of talent is being released in conjunction with Wondaland Presents: The Eephus EP, due August 14, and includes six tracks from Wondaland’s carefully handpicked roster: Its founding singular artist, Jidenna (“It’s a mystery school where you learn how to be the dopest magician in the world,” he adds later on in the clip), Deep Cotton, Roman GianArthur, and St. Beauty.

Release Notes:

Arriving two years after the haunting, glacial neo-soul of 2012’s much-loved Total Loss, “What Is This Heart?” is the next step in Krell’s unique and searching artistic trajectory. Its twelve songs were conceived and written during months of grueling international touring and realised with producer Rodaidh McDonald in a Berlin studio in the height of summer 2013. The result is an ambitious 21st century pop album that takes influence from artists as varied as Prince, Lou Reed, Burial and Tracy Chapman – creating and inhabiting its very own hinterland of fragility, sexuality and overwhelming joy.

“What Is This Heart?” is a record that delves deeply into the core of the psyche and touches on themes of isolation, loss and existential anguish, but in the end finds redemption in the infinite possibilities of love. Its songs tackle ideas of anxiety, fear, lack of control, nightmare, death, pain, pleasure, pride and shame, trust and commitment with an honesty and intimacy that is rare in the modern age.

An album that celebrates the possible healing power of American pop music in all its various guises, “What Is This Heart?” unifies Krell’s prescient understanding of modern production techniques and aesthetics with an increasingly mature songwriting voice that evokes great American songwriters like Bill Callahan and Mark Kozelek as much as it does his oft-citedR’n’B influences and once again asserts Krell as an artist of great courage, taste and craft.
