Album Stream: Childish Gambino – Awaken, My Love!

Donald Glover continues to create his own lane with his new 1970s R&B-inspired Awaken, My Love!  Soulful elements of George Clinton, Funkadelic, Tower of Power and The Isley Brothers can all be heard on the stunning project.  Rapping is noticeably absent from the album, but the harmonization over twangy electric guitars, electric pianos and flutes on its 11 tracks provide a breathtaking and dream-like experience for the ages.  Stream via Spotify below.
