Boomkat Product Review:
You know how it is; one moment you're the toast of the leftfield, the next you're being used to flog beer and all of a sudden the trendies are pigeon-holing you alongside Zero 7... And so it came to pass that Bonobo (aka Simon Green) found himself drowning in the soporific sea of dinner-party music, despite the fact that his outwardly polite compositions often masked a far darker heart than initial contact would suggest. Very much sticking to the schematic that served him well in the past, new album 'Days To Come' is a ribald fusion of grand instrumentation that nicely buffs the polished vocals that augment his sound throughout - with the title track a pithy example. Strutting along with a textured break and lazy sax, Bajka's off-kilter vocals add a finely balanced frission to the music that resembles a bond theme-tune from an alternative reality. Soulful and breezy, Bonobo's music is certainly not for everyone in its soft-centered nature and by the time Fink makes an appearance on 'If You Stayed Over' (think Bent) you're willing Green to give it some bite. Yet get your head around this and you'll soon be bewitched by the grand instrumentation and epic interludes, with the likes of the break marinated 'Recurring', the corrugated star-gazing of 'On Your Marks' with its Shadow-esque overtones, and delicate soul of 'Nightlite' all more diverting than you'll initially give credit for.
