thanks for your feedback Mark, much appreciated : -)
Nice work Bemuzic and Buggy. It's great to hear CBG artists being creative and original. I've always thought the real test of CBGs as a concept was whether they could get beyond the stage of people just knocking out endless blues cliches and lead to something genuinely different. You guys show how that can be. Buggy, I love your opening track "Hang", a neat mix of bluesy influences and dance mix groove. And Bemuzic, I love "Haruki Murakami" - truly original sound and literary influences as a bonus! The title track "Simplify" is great too - your vocals seem to have an added confidence these days without losing your characteristic delicacy.
thanks Chris, will go and check yours out : -)
Bemuzic your album sounds fab!
here's my latest creation too... eeek! ;>)
I'll just leave this here in case anyone fancies a listen (CBG's used on every track) https://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/album/simplify
