Even with the plethora of sounds we have on tap, my ungrateful ears still struggle to remain attentive. Not even Glass Animals’ debut album was doing the trick – don’t worry, it’ll still be reviewed. But another earmarked band knew what I wanted.
With a dreamy aesthetic that drifts aimlessly from one intangible moment to the next, Adult Jazz’s ‘Spook’ is a wonderfully crafted 9-minute gem. It’s ridiculous to think these guys only played their first live gig back in November considering the maturity and confidence that exudes throughout this track. The swirling transitions are seamless while the sense of yearning borders on being transcendent.
So if you are ungratefully greedy, there’s more than enough textural beauty here for you to drift off too.
