Hailed as the next Andre 3000, the Alicia Keys-collaborating vocalist and songwriter behind Plant Life has kept behind the scenes since 2004’s The Return of Jack Splash. And now he’s finally back with another serving of space-age soul. The record opens with Splash declaring, “I put the bang-bang boogie in your girl’s caboose,” on a track that pays homage to just about everybody, and what follows is an uneven hour with plenty of gems. TimeTraveler undoubtedly sounds better in a club than on the stereo, so in the meantime cue this up between Chow Nasty and Prince, and watch your summer parties come to life.
