Karmic – Phases

Sweet vocal harmonies over a bed of summer groove.  A little cheeky but all in good fun.  Wait till the bridge lands on this one.

Mat Hours – La Roue

An instrumental track really has to stand out for me to take notice and that is exactly what happened when I heard the latest from Mat Hours.  Fans of Mylo (who put on a clinic with his highly acclaimed album, “Destroy Rock & Roll”) is a rare example of true artistry with sonic textures.   “La Roue” now sits next to this high water mark. The track uses a tapestry of piano, vocal bits and a funky bassline.  Very few do it this well and is sure to be in my best of 2017 short list.
