Info for A Humdrum Star (Deluxe)

Akustischer Jazz, mal meditativ und mal dynamisch treibend, der an Drive und Spannung elektronischer Musik erinnert, ist die Spezialität des gefeierten englischen Trios. Auf ihrem neuen Werk kreuzen die drei Musiker Ambient-Klänge mit karibischen Rhythmen und minimalistische Klaviermelodien mit House-Sounds, Funk-Loops und chilligen Akkorden. Das Ergebnis der Sound-Melange ist erstaunlicherweise eine ebenso runde wie mitreißende Musik, die geradewegs in die Zukunft des Jazz weist.

„Experimentalisten auf der Suche nach besserer Improvisationsmusik“ (Times)

„Was am meisten zählt, ist der Groove“ (Wall Street Journal)

„Ein energiegeladener Sound“ (Pitchfork)

A Humdrum Star ist das heißerwartete zweite Album des britischen Trios.

GoGo Penguin
Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music. Their album v2.0 (Gondwana Records) was named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year in 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed a three album deal with Blue Note Records (France) and released the debut Blue Note album Man Made Object in 2016. More recently they have been touring their own unique score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi.
