Narrative: Mobley’s stitching together a macro-pop storyline across time and genre. Make that glitching. 2021’s EP Young & Dying in the Occident Supreme, which just sold out its vinyl press, fell upside down through BLM into an existential storytelling that quantum leaped on October’s sci-fi follow-up. “Digital soul-pop slick and sure,” ventured the Chronicle, “analog at heart, but numeric in precision and pulse. Cry Havoc! beats and blips and bursts like a dissident Prince.” Touring, conceptualizing videos, raising a fam, his homecoming release weekend finally peaks at 3ten with San Gabriel and Caelin, then encores acoustically Sunday afternoon at Waterloo Records. And that’s only 2022 at the wane. Wait and witness what’s in-store (pun intended) next year. Remember, narrative.
