Nobody & Mystic Chords Of Memory – “tree colored see…” – [mush]

Zoltan   8/21/2006   A Library, CD

Groovy, laid back, folky, melow, atmospheric, with a pinch of psychedilia and country, you can tell there is something smart going on behind the smooth spacey earth ride, but it seems better not to think too much about this…just listen, smile and float. Overall a solid release that got better the more I listened to it. This project features from Los Angeles DJ Nobody (Elvin Estela) paired with Mystic Chords of Memory. Mystic Chords are Santa Cruz couple Chris Gunst (formerly of Beachwood Sparks) and Jennifer Cohen (Aisler’s Set)…we have an LP from Beachwood Sparks in the KFJC library, and Aisler’s Set appears on two separate compilations. High Fives to Nobody for his restraint on this project…he lays down a beat but acts more like a well behaved drummer, which, in this case, compliments the release. Trip hoppy, but psychedelic, plenty of Air (French Band) inspired harmonies, which is like appropriating appropriation…what comes around goes around, slightly different each time. Released on Mush records in the US and on Rough Trade in Europe, check out this California Super Goldrush of Kind Creeper Pop.
