EDITORS’ NOTES

On their third album, GoGo Penguin marry energetic acoustic jazz playing with intricate electronic-inspired compositions. With parallels to pianists Robert Glasper or Brad Mehldau’s sly takes on indie pop and soul, the British trio conjure glitchy club sounds (“Weird Cat”) and hypnotic fusions (“Unspeakable World”) using a traditional framework: Chris Illingworth’s cascading piano melodies pirouet around Nick Blacka’s double bass and Rob Turner’s drumming. They combine in flowing meditations (“All Res”) and frenetic drum ‘n’ bass-worthy beats (“Smarra”) alike—one techno soul living in a fiery, three-headed bop body.

Progressive acoustic electronic jazz!!

Just amazing. Unlike last album (which was also great as well), this album contains more up-tempo pieces. Just getting more creative and options for their future!
