Cairobi – Cairobi

Wednesday 15th, February 2017 / 12:41

Some Other Planet Records

With the same dreamy atmosphere of Tame Impala, but with a decidedly European edge, Cairobi’s self-titled follow up to their 2015 EP, Distant Fire, is full of psychedelic magic carpet rides to get lost in. “Gristly Words,” a weird and experimental ditty starts everything off with weird timing and ethereal vocals, boasting a jazzy heartbeat for a psych-flavoured track that features more than enough to keep your ears busy. By the time you get to “Systems of Mutual Doubt,” you are up to your neck in a sci-fi sized sonic landscape: jangly far off guitar, chirps and distant swells, it’s a weird ride, but one that is surprisingly easy to get into. A standout track is “Zoraide,” with its multi-layered percussion and upbeat tempo, it thumps deep under your skin while leaving an optimistic taste in your mouth; the confident stream of consciousness vocals playfully leap over the relentlessness of the production. As you lay back into the weightlessness of the closing track “No Better Ending,” you have to appreciate the craftsmanship in this release; it is a fizzy, ambitious, gently throbbing, sashaying selection of tracks that are never too long but surprisingly complex. Perfect music for space travel or getting very lost in the forest.
