A sound that invites you in. More going on than at first blush the feel shapes over towards the Mattson 2 sound but with a much busier agile street sound to it bubbling under on some tracks. A tuneful fairly melodic 'n' beats psychedelic vibe burns through, and a darting motion probes ever on during this 5-track EP bunch of groovy instrumentals. Golden Mean are the latest clubby Jazz re:freshed favoured band to surface and are very chill but get the motor running when they need to as guitar moves to the beat coloured by cosmic Lonnie Liston Smith reminiscent keyboards.
Highly relatable they appear at the Jazz Cafe in London this Saturday night in a new act triple bill. Personnel on the record are: Tom Driessler, bass guitar; Luke Wynter, guitar; Matt Davies, drums; Lyle Barton, keys. Tracks are: Orbit Trip, Through Walls, Midnight, Tightrope and Rinse & Repeat.
