    Freed from the desire to make people move, Joakim put together a record that’s unified in its oddity.

    Samurai is easily Joakim's subtlest album yet, and it's easy to see why it's such a personal, sentimental statement for him.

    This album may not prove to be everyone’s cup of tea and may require a bit of hope and patience to listen to Samurai. Joakim has made an album that is simultaneously familiar yet unique and sets you on a creative sonic journey.

    Samurai is an often frustrating listen, but at a minimum, it is always interesting.
