Album: Electric Wire Hustle - The 11th Sky

Via Bastard Jazz: Expanding on their psychedelic soul sound, The 11th Sky continues the surreal storytelling of last years Aeons EP, which also featured Kimbra and Deva Mahal on vocals. The brand new album is described as “David Lynch meets Motown” by frontman and producer Mara TK, and indeed, a sense of the otherworldly is present here within EWH’s layered electronic production and Mara’s soaring vocals. Tracks like “Go Slow” walk into the genre-fog amongst drum machines and synthesisers. Meanwhile “I Light A Candle” with its piano, chopped vocal samples, towering strings and 808s strikes right at the heart of soul music.
