Red Snapper Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Red Snapper are one of Britian's most renowned instrumental acts, crafting delicate downtempo tunes through a synthesis of organic jazz arrangements. On 'Card Trick EP', they celebrate their recent record 'Hyena' with the original self-titled track along with three new remixes from some like-minded friends. Tici Taci sustain things beyond the point of no return, while Rich Thair and Auntie Flo also do their worst.
No soundclips on this so I'm going off what the label say. I've always been a bit partial to a bit of Red Snapper so its nice to see that they are still on the go. It seems like they have stayed hungry to produce better and better work which is great to see. The album is inspired by a recent soundtrack they did for cult 70's Sengalese road movie "Touki Bouki", touring for a year with the film has helped them have a tight and disciplined approach. As you may expect there are lots of '70's influences on this reflecting their work over the last few years but its not all retro-ist as they combine it with cutting edge futurist musicality to create a timeless African-influenced album.
