"Night Surfer" was released a few weeks ago. It is yet another fantastic release from Chuck Prophet.
I will keep the hyperbole to a minimum, but I must say this. Prophet's solo output has been one of the most consistent in rock and roll. I know many will go as far back as 1990's "Brother Aldo," but for me, the year 2000 and its accompanying release "The Hurting Business," began a 15 year stretch of one breathtaking...yes, BREATHTAKING...release after another.
"Night Surfer" continues this tradition.
Chuck Prophet can sure spin a yarn. He can write a hook. He can play guitar.
2012's "Temple Beautiful" was all about San Francisco and it was a fave of that year. "Night Surfer" feels very autobiographical. I was moved. It thrilled me both musically and lyrically. I cannot recommend Chuck Prophet enough.
Ok, I'm finished.
