Theophilus has proven no one looks better in Western gear than him. On the cover of his album, the brim of his hat is about as wide as he is tall. And he’s slouching a little, too. The album, his full length, official, major labor debut, starts with a song where he product-places Cole Haan, who made him a model, and includes the futuristic sex brag, She get naked on Skype. The album loosens, though, London fulfilling the Elvis Costello promise of his This Charming Mixtape on “The Lighthouse,” before ending with some manic ’80s movie pop with “I Stand Alone.” Come to think of it, he’s kind of like Duckie. Or at least he dresses like him. Listen over at Spinner.
