Lee Burridge’s “TRYBESof” imprint welcomes Jim Ryder for some sumptuous new sounds.
Klaatu kicks off with lovely expressive melodies and warm drums. They are dreamy yet driving. Symmetry is another musical and lush tune with many layers of great sound, organic perc and smart keys. It’s airy and warm and perfectly captivating. The best of the lot might be Paraiso with its acoustic guitar drums and shakers, warm drums and fleshy pads. Grizzly Bee is the last tune and one that captures the spirit of a Latin summer with chunky drums, vocal wails and vibrant percussion.
This is a great new EP from this man.
