Music Review – 29th St – The Stone Lounge EP

29th st

From the opening synthesizer and bass line on the song Movin’, you know you’re going to be on a ride that can last for hours. Their MySpace page brands their music as “Down-tempo/Experimental”, but the music grop known as 29th St. sounds like a modern-day funk/jazz band that has been grooving together for decades.

Their debut release, entitled The Stone Lounge EP, is a four-song offering shows a lot of promise for future releases. Keyboardist Andrew and bass player Rai have been getting radio play on the Santa Monica’s 89.9 KCRW, but this EP has a global appeal. The live hip hop drums on Indentation serve as the appropriate foundation for Andrew and Rai ride. They weave together a jam that can easily stay on repeat and not agitate the listener.

Flavour starts with Gabriel Rodriguez Botsford playing the flute with the raspy soul of a West African griot telling the story of the history of music. Andrew comes in with a keyboard melody that’s equally powerful. He and the flute player trade back and forth as naturally as a conversation between two respectful musicians finding a common ground on the aural landscape of syncopated drums and plucked bass licks.

The dreamy Monkeywrist quickly turns into a weird nightmare of spoken word poetry/rap. One of the inner panels has the lyrics of Monkeywrist written out. The lyrics are just as powerful when listened to as they are when read. Although only four songs and a little under ten and a half minutes long, The Stone Lounge EP will prove to be a great addition to the collection of music lovers of all kinds.
