Van Hunt has dropped a tasty track to whet the appetite of fans in the lead up to the release of his new album. "Handful of Vapor" was featured on the AFROPUNK Festival 2014 Sampler CD, alongside musical treats from Lolawolf, Shabazz Palaces, Alice Smith and more. The song is a guitar driven ride down a psychedelic soul road full of unexpected twists and turns. But would we expect anything else from the always quirky Hunt? Certainly not, and "Handful of Vapor" delivers just enough to intrigue while leaving the listener wanting more. Hypnotic guitar, mechanical drums and sporadic synths all steal the show before Hunt's falsetto-filled harmonies make an appearance almost halfway through.
If there was any lingering doubt on whether to invest in Hunt's upcoming project, "Handful of Vapor" will surely erase that as quickly as this short number grooves by. Head over to PledgeMusic to pre-order Van Hunt's new album now and get your free copy of "Handful of Vapor" on SoundCloud. Also, if you didn't cop the AFROPUNK Festival 2014 Sampler CD when it dropped a couple weeks ago, you can obtain that for free download from Amazon.
