Adult Jazz, the Leeds, England quartet have officially burrowed themselves into my consciousness over the past month or so. Their brainy polyrhythms, eloquent lyrics and sneaky tunes took a labrythine route in taking hold of me, but damn, now that they have, I can’t get enough. Gist Is, their proper debut is a warm and winding masterpiece, influenced by the likes of Dirty Projectors and tUnE-yArDs.
“Am Gone” is my current favorite track, showcasing the unique croon of frontman Harry Burgess, but there’s not a bad track on here. Their currently on tour, moving from the East Coast to the UK over the next few weeks, so be sure to check them out if you can.
