Smoke Notes

The latest in this "home listening" series (other highlights in the series have come from Zero 7, Kid Loco, Nightmares On Wax, Sly & Robbie and Turin Breaks), comes courtesy of Kieran "Four Tet" Hebden, the man behind some of the most enchanting and listenable avant-garde electronica in recent years. Fusing electronica and post-rock, Hebden has released a trio of outstanding albums under his Four Tet moniker ('Dialogue', 'Pause', 'Rounds'), plus numerous other collaborations, and this intriguing set serves as a homage to those have inspired his music making palate. Pitching warm psychedelia against cool jazz, free floating folk against leftfield hip hop, all wrapped in a certain relative "experimental lunacy", Hebden throws together tracks from the likes of avant-jazz man Roland Kirk, beat manipulator Koushik, Manfred Mann's Chapter 3, sound manipulator Terry Riley (sourced from a 1963 Chet Baker recording), Max Roach and his percussion collective, seminal post-rockers Tortoise, freaky hip hop outfit the Gravediggaz (featuring the production skills of both Rza and Prince Paul), sax player Joe Henderson, Richard Thompson's Fairport Convention, mad sonic hip hop from MF Doom and Madlib's Madvillain project (as remixed by Koushik), and of course like minded music maker Manitoba. Add to this a Four Tet cover of the Jimi Hendrix classic "Castles Made Of Sand" (apparently one of Hebden's favourite songs), and you have a listening album of genuine stature, that while certainly a little "highbrow" and packed with the suitably "obscure", is none-the-less full of plenty of musical substance. A welcome thought provoking addition to this fine series. Recommended.
