IN DA PLAYA - Steve Lawson / Theo Travis, Blur

  1. So Steve Lawson's new album dropped through my door on Saturday morning. TOP stuff... It's amazing when you think that it is all totally improvised, first take stuff. Theo lays down some really awesome sax and flute playing - really atmospheric. Steve provides the low end, and mid-range funk guitar lines. Neat playing all round. The free extra CD of additional material is also very cool.

    It's a really nicely recorded piece of work - apparently just recorded at home using FL Studio and SoundForge (I almost wrote SoundFrog then!;) ). Great results...

    Also spinning this week is Blur's album "Think Tank". If you liked Gorillaz then this is similar but without the annoying rapping. There are some just stonking songs on it.

    Both (all three) of these albums are on strict rotation around here at the minute. Loving it!
