Sunken Condos by Donald Fagen
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Reprise
Fagen's vision hasn't changed much since the Dan's initial hiatus back in '81. Longtime fans know what to expect with Sunken Condos: sleek art-pop with funky accents and light touches of jazz and R&B. This time around, however, the music feels more historical, as if Fagen consciously littered the album with little nods to his past. One of the tastiest is "The New Breed," a cheeky tale about an older man whose lady ditched him for a younger guy. The forward march of age again rears its head in "Miss Marlene," a silky, if odd yarn seemingly about bowling partners (lovers?) who fell out of touch.
