Mister T – Gentle Music

January 15, 2012 in Albums

Because it was before Xmas it seems like ages now, but it was actually a mere 24 days ago that I reviewed the album Seven Wonders by Mojo Rising, saying that not a lot of such downtempo, dusty kinda vibes make it onto TIWWD. Well, here we are 24 days later and here’s another album of mellow, funk-fuelled goodness from the same stable, Denver’s Cold Busted.

Mister T hails from Athens, Greece and Gentle Music is his debut full-length. Within its grooves you’ll find raw retro funk (Everything Is Wah, Rastas Funky Well), quirky electronic lounge vibes (Cocktails, Memories) and lo-fi near-instrumental hip/trip-hop (Hip Soul, Lazy Sound, Back To Bristol), ending with the scratchy, vibraphone-laden Living Room. I can think of no better way of describing it further, than to say that I’m writing this on a Sunday afternoon and that’s probably the perfect time to hear this album, as well.
Perfect lazy, laidback vibes for sofa-surfers and lounge lizards everywhere, then. And the second winner on the bounce from Cold Busted.
Out: This week
