This EP is great. If these folks lived 200 miles south they would be superstars already. Get this record before it becomes another one of the $100 Discogs UK listings because retail sold out.
Favorite track: Dahling.
Sola Terra’s debut record is a journey into sound, with Brighton based septet Ebi Soda. Drawing inspiration from jazz originators and combining their own coastal flavour and creativity creates a fresh energetic style.
The tracks ebb and flow over a foundation of rhythm, slipping into smooth guitar riffs, swelling trombone and drum sections. Ebi Soda create a big band feel, spilling tight grooves and innovative brass lines through their live shows and recordings.
Dahling, Manbaby, Verbal Intercourse and Table are the four debut tracks from the self titled EP Ebi Soda. The record is a sonic journey into modern jazz composition.
"Kokoroko" is an impressive high-energy album that captures all of the talent and excitement of the current UK Jazz scene. The playing is fantastic, and the band is incredibly tight, incredibly strong. Highly recommended... rikm
I tend to think of Jazz/Ambient/Electronica as more tenously anchored in the world, but Driftglass were one of several engaged & active artists in the 2019 Mercury nominees: their passion and criticism for the behaviour of the government clearly fuelling their creativity Rich Hims
