Serpent EPMp3s & jpegs
> Going Good pair up, once more, with Detroit's Todd Modes (1/2 of Cosmic Handshakes) for a 4 tracker of discoid motor city music. Featuring a plethora of international and local Detroit musical talents and movers (including our very own Tokyo connect - Yoshinori Hayashi), the 'Serpent EP' is not typical of the majority of sonic output from the city. Eschewing techno archetypes and operating within a distinctly 'live' group scenario, Modes and his crew offer us an organic 4 tracker steeped in ritualistic studio jamming and mixing, explosive live percussion, whispered chants and vocals, heavy dub stylings and jazz infused keys work, all graced with blasts of skilful saxophone and a feeling of hazy smoked out groove that only a lifetime of digging $1 thrift store disco 12''s and basement mixing sessions can lead to. Yet another essential piece of fresh after-hours Motown music from this extremely talented camp of contemporary artists from the city.
