Deniro Farrar’s “This Is It” isn’t from his new album The Patriarch, but from his collaborative EP with production duo Blue Sky Black Death, Cliff of Death, which preceded it. “This Is It” is indicative of what Farrar does well: he’s a minimal lyricist, his voice a plainspoken rasp that sticks to the lush beats that he seems to love. The video is one of those pieces that makes a live performance look like the most poignant thing a human being can participate in, which is a long way of saying that even though it’s just performance footage paired with some behind-the-scenes stuff, it all feels very heavy.
