Boomkat Product Review:
Slotting in with all the ‘90s anti-peristalsis that’s in vogue right now, Church unnecessarily return to the rightfully maligned and sprawling acid jazz sound with Folamour’s Melophrenia.
Jazz Session For No Future People reminds us of staying on a school night in the ‘90s to tape Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show in the hope of catching some nuggs, but unfortunately this one sounds like the bobbins you’d have to wade thru to get the good stuff. Either that or something from a bargain bin at the boro branch of smack generators.
Melophrenia follows more successfully with a sloshing deep house groove gently lit with sparkling rhodes and burnished soul vox lifted from Aleke Kanonu’s Aleke, and the beatdown hustle of Janvier In Bed is thankfully one of those low-key burners you might hope to stumble across on GP’s show.
