Tracklist: Oupa - Forget

Oupa is the solo project of Daniel Blumberg, formerly trading in this form as Yu(c)k, so presumably now his band are taking off he wanted a proper name for his airy, fragile piano outings to properly differentiate when he's not being all slacker. This first outing from June's mini-album of the same name suggests Blumberg has spent good time with the Perfume Genius album, all slightly detuned piano and meaningful falsetto, but at least he proves he has the vocal chops, heading around and about his range. It may be moot how much actual pain there is in it, but the reflective heartbreak leaps off the page/waveform.
