Review on Arnheim - Floras of Autumn Street

Released on Barbara Recordings

 
-
After some noteworthy releases on labels such as Greta Cottage Arnheim installed his own imprint (called Barbara Recordings) and delivered the first record himself: “Floras Of Autumn Street” is a four track EP that illustrates Arnheims class in creating deep deep stuff. The title track sets the tone of the records atmosphere, merging forceful drums with a jazzy piano and warm repetitive chants resulting in a vibe that’s groovy and nonchalant but also got a certain twist and is far from being merely lounge music or something.

“Our Lady Of Perpetual Dance” is based on a stripped-down House beat with a slight tendency towards stumbling (I got reminded of Wbeezas rhythm works while Arnheims stuff maybe is a little more reduced).

With “Which Of The Waltzes” Arnheim moves on to more free-form expressions, slows it down significantly and counts on percussions and the once more jazzy bass line. Absolutely amazing: the beauty- and soulful vocal performance by Shama Joseph that ranges from casual to expressive.

And also the releases last track is a remarkable one: “Groups Of Fourths” broken beats jolt and  twitch in downtempo, the tracks’ bare structure not disguised by superfluities. And it meanders lushly and sophisticated into a slightly alienating delight. Exciting!
