"Will You Please Let Me Pour My Heart Out?" is Kevin Kenkel's debut record as a solo composer and performer, created during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown in New York City in the summer of 2020. Samples of mainstream pop music swirl among analog synthesizers as the music explores human-machine interactions through spoken English language. Vocal samples of chatbots and other forms of artificial intelligence exploit the odd, idiosyncratic ways machines attempt to replicate humanity, casting a skeptical gaze towards our algorithm-dominated culture. Musically, the record maintains a calm, languid pace, as a reflection of it being created mostly in the middle of the night during a period of unusual quiet in Brooklyn.
