'Christopher' is an album about starting over, but not necessarily moving forward. It's a breakup album, but as one listen will tell you, not necessarily a sad one. It's McPhun's fourth record for Memphis Industries, third for Sub Pop and first mixed by an a-list engineer: Chris Coady of Beach House, Grizzly Bear, gang gang dance and a zillion more. Mcphun spent two weeks at Coady's studio in New York. Together they polished christopher to an opalescent sheen, yielding the kind of expensive-sounding, future-leaning ear candy typically in the province of top 40 radio. Mcphun makes his own brand of pop - accessible and unconventional, ethereal and concise, modern and timeless. In that regard, 'Christopher' is miles beyond previous Ruby Suns records - a high-fi, meta-disco, headphonic roller-skating jam for lovers written and recorded over the course of several years, several world tours and several separate bands.
