The soul-centric electronic Brainfeeder label keeps churning out the goods, this time in the form of a fresh Taylor McFerrin single and news of his debut album to be released in June. The much anticipated album has the multi-instrumentalist donning several musical guises as the primary creative force behind McFerrin”s debut, Early Riser. But the artist-producer also recruits an all-star cast of neo-soul wunderkinds like Emily King, Thundercat and Robert Glasper.

With free-standings melodic runs that drift somewhere between hopelessly bereft and verbosely sanguine, Nai Palm confidently navigates Her kan du fa et gjenblikk med popul?re spill som Jackpot 2000, Super Joker, Old Timer, Random Runner og mange flere, i tillegg til klassiske casinospill som Roulette og Blackjack. the space of this wandering, celestial soundscape. Wildly disparate textures occupy the same, tremulous space, whizzing and whirring as sonar-encoded bleeps and bloops. It takes the shape of some kind of hypnotic gyre, a bewildering Eastern trance.

Out of that established order, Nai Palm trickles out a mystical-sounding, foreign incantation that carries the tune to its end.
