Strikingly stylish organic soul and blues pour through amidst a seductive swagger of a rhythm for this superb instrumental extract from Döbel Tape #1.
Efeu melts away the weight of the world, blending simple layers of bass and reverb-kissed guitar to create a level of shoulder-swaying confidence and funk-soaked creative embrace that’s second to none.
It’s simple yet satisfying, progressing in a manner that builds and builds until it’s close to impossible not to lose yourself – your movements – to the groove.
The project continues in a similarly immersive manner, feeling almost like an extended track or experience that keeps on giving – each new compositions a subtle sequel to the last, holding tightly to that mood and positive energy.
Given the severe lack of live music in our world lately, this project makes for a sublime hit of instrumental escapism that’s as close to the real thing as possible. Brilliant musicianship, not showy but humble in execution – making fine use of precisely the right building blocks when it comes to comforting and engaging a new audience. Lovely.
