Today, yesterday’s rant about NYC and drumming continues, because this morning I came into work and was super excited to see NYC sitting on my desk at Groupie Mag.

Out through Domino November 18, NYC is the latest effort from long time collaborators Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid. After last year’s Tongues LP, this release combines the aesthetics of soul jazz and NY post punk to pay homage to the city Reid occupies and Hebden frequents. This is their fourth collaboration, recorded on the 5th and 6th of February this year at the legendary Avatar Studio.

Two days isn’t a long time, and much of the album tracks sound improvised, but regardless the six songs are dynamic and so engaging and I think by the sounds of it, I am going to feel really at home at '1st and 1st' come January…

(Do you know where that is? Does it even exist?)
