EBI SODA - HONK IF YOU'RE SAD VINYL RE-PRESS (LTD. ED. 2LP)
LIMITED EDITION 2LP VINYL RE-PRESS
Release Date: 30th September 2022
"Born from ten-hour jam sessions in peeling Brighton bedsits, the technical parameters of a bootstrap recording process and the osmotic, multi- genre influence of internet music archives, quintet Ebi Soda have been steady- cultivating a unique sound amidst the exploding UK jazz scene. In typical Ebi style, while recalling jazz pioneers in playing style, 'Honk If You're Sad' draws from a vast neural network of influences: the Ebi Brain has been marinating in a digital soup of trap, drill, dub, post-punk and no wave to name but a few. The result is a mercurial record that beams in psychedelia, dissonance, serene ambient passages, tough, neck- snapping beats and lush textures, all underscored by the intersection of jazz, hip hop and electronic music. From influences as diverse as Kokoroko, Can, Lounge Lizards, BadBadNotGood, Ronin Arkestra, and The Fall, 'Honk if You're Sad' focuses on a cohesive whole; an explorative, playful and technically brilliant record that coaxes the listener through immersive phases of fun, chaos and harmony."
