Bonobo - Black Sands


Recommended Posts

It's really very good. His last LP was a bit boring, but this is a return to form. Whereas 'Days To Come' was perhaps a bit less electronic-based, to reflect his awesome live show, 'Black Sands' wears its electronica on its sleeve, whatever that means. It seems to have even drawn inspiration from wonky producers, like Flying Lotus (the SID-esque synth on the second track is so/i] FlyLo; whereas Eyes Down totay takes its cues from dupstep, Burial especially.

On top of that, there's the usual Bonobo catch guitar hooks, simplistic - but ace - beats and silky production.

Here's Eyes Down:

Edit: actually, here's El Toro too; perhaps a better representation on Bonobo:

They put on an awesome live show, too. Going to see them for the third time in May.
