NPR First Listen – Duncan Sheik new release, Legerdemain

Jim Allen’s Spot On Overview of the Album

Produced by Duncan Sheik with Additional Production by Michael Tudor. Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Michael Tudor

“The album’s unpredictable nature is another indicator that Sheik cares little about the songs’ commercial potential. Legerdemain‘s first half finds the singer-songwriter surrounding himself with electronics. Synth lines and digital beats skitter stylishly around Sheik’s vocals and guitar, wrapping the tunes in a sleek (but never slick) electronic sheen, whether he’s getting self-conscious about his own role as a musical storyteller in “Selling Out” (“Everything I’m telling you is a song I’m selling you”) or dreading an oncoming disaster that could be a failing relationship, our imperiled climate or both in “Warning Light.”
