Jamie Woon - Making Time album
Features Song Lyrics for Jamie Woon's Making Time album.
Genre: Alternative R&B. Comparisons are all well and good, but ultimately ‘Making Time’’s strength is in asserting exactly what Woon specialises in. After so many years away, a reminder was much needed.
Making Time is the second studio album by British singer Jamie Woon. It was released on 6 November 2015 through Polydor Records. It was preceded by the single "Sharpness" on 21 August 2015. Making Time was nominated for the 2016 Mercury Prize.
Jamie Woon emerged at the same time as James Blake, Sampha and Jessie Ware, and provided a human, soulful voice to sit along the mechanical, austere sound of post-dubstep. Five years after his debut, Mirrorwriting, Making Time finds Woon creating music that is surprisingly minimal: he has spent that time absorbing the output of Theo Parrish and fellow Brit Floating Points, and you can tell. From the first track, Message, drums and bass dominate, as tracks emerge out of a soulful, primordial murk, with every note and lyric sounding honed, terse and meticulously crafted.
Jamie Woon – 'Making Time'. London soul singer embraces smart R&B on long-delayed second album. His breakthrough song ‘Night Air’, produced by Burial, was a stunning marriage of echoing electronics, pulsing sub bass and Woon’s soulful vocals. In the event it failed to make much impact. The following year Woon released ‘Mirrorwriting’, an album of downtempo R&B and soul, and promptly vanished. The 32-year-old Londoner was last heard singing on ‘January’ from Disclosure’s 2013.
Making Time is Jamie Woon’s second full length album. It’s quite common for me to start a song and then sit on it for two years before I finish it. I used to feel a lot of guilt about how long things take, but I’ve made peace with that. Part of the reason this record took so long is that I wanted to feel like a new person, releasing a new record. The record wasn’t as well received as his debut, with Pitchfork scoring it slightly lower, and most.
Album · 2015 · 10 Songs. Throughout this confident set, we’re given concrete evidence that the extended prep time was used wisely. Movement sees Woon’s delicate vocal dance across a confident, jazzy strut, single Sharpness implements restrained R&B before gently swelling into its gorgeous chorus, while Thunder ’s sunshine psychedelic aspirations perhaps point at how Woon’s grand talent may yet unspool. Making Time Jamie Woon.
