More after hours lounging from the Cinematic Orchestra
on 9 June 2002
I was introduced to the Cinematic Orchestra's albums out of unison. I first bought The Remixes ,then recently Everyday which I found superb and so recently I bought the debut Motion. For Motion lacking the more melodic sound of the mellower new masterpiece Everyday . Motion is dark through out. The whole album oozes 1950's smoky bass lines sassy horns and percussions, with snippetts of stylish jazzy vocals that resemble Simone on the dangerous sleazy opener Durian. Channell 1 suit is completely out of charecter being more of a club orientaded track from the rest of this straigt contempory jazz set which flows along with echoes heavilly of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. Forget the comercial compilation chill out albums for winding down. This album is a seious late night lounger, for the post club post party crowd to see in the dawn. The whole sound is dark and moody, and the tempoe remains as late night down beats. Another winner from the Cinematic Orchestra.
