Curtains finally part on Toronto’s Abel Tesfaye. His three acclaimed mixtapes in 2011 – House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence – became an underground sensation, distributed through social media and with little in the way of live appearances. Pronounced “the weakened,” his work is that of a cynical romantic, full of shadows, regret, and a bruised ego on par with collaborator Drake. This month’s major label debut, Kiss Land (Universal Republic), puts him on a proper U.S. tour with L.A.’s Banks.
