Was von 2014 übrig blieb (V)
Besonders empfehle ich die Songs “Hum”, “Am gone”, “Pigeon skulls”, “Spook” und “Idiot mantra”. Also fast alle Songs des Albums…Ultimately, the primary appeal of Adult Jazz’s music is in its unique and playful syntax, which is neither indulgently collage-like or remotely predictable. Their sound is not revolutionary, but nonetheless wholly distinctive—and nowadays, this seems a hard bargain for any rock band to strike. Gist Is is full of clever turns of musical and lyrical phrase which will dispel possible accusations of self-indulgence and pretension, and somehow, within just a few listens, it becomes easy to enjoy this unusually paced album of so few easy hooks, and so many seemingly insignificant words.
