Infusing blues-rock with brass and double-bass allows Jay Bird to create what sounds like extemporised pieces. Whilst jazz isn’t a style of music I often find myself recommending you take time to have a listen, a double-bass always piques an interest. Friday Night combines dirty-blues and jazzy sax, leaving the audience smiling broadly.
Each time I come back to Panda Elliot they throw another idea into the mix.
The live version of Obsesión discovers Panda Elliot in yet another light, with a folk derived track that drifts quietly around the room filling the spaces with softly delivered melodies and a background of rolling mist with vocal shining through the quiet layers of sound. Towards the latter end of Obsesión the mood shifts to one reminding of dark storm clouds blowing fiercely around the ears before calmly folding into a restful conclusion.
The Argentinian dream-wave quartet Tirman Kid were first introduced a year ago.
Tonight finds Tirman Kid with an even softer brush than the tracks previously featured as the guitars blend into the synths, which gives the piece the sense of more deeply piled velvet carpet in which to sink.
Tonight is delivered at a more measured pace allowing the listener time to discover the nuances of the various elements of Tirman Kid in a track that has drips of psychedelic-shoegaze interwoven through the just over three minutes of hushed melody.
