Babexo – Tropical Jazz EPPosted: March 30, 2014
Here’s yet another multi-instrumentalist with an anonymous edge who wants to make his music sound like a clever collection of found commercial music and cleverly assembled samples. Sure, it’s hazy, but it’s not cheesy enough to be h-pop. Or at least that’s what they made us think and suddenly there’s a guy like Babexo, who does some slow jazz impressions which is nearly as steeped in hiss and maze of half-memories as 1991, expect with a melodic, melancholic edge. Plus check this out, Helmut Newton did the cover! What’s not to love? Get a bottle and get dissolved in that scorching heat.
