- Beneath The Waves by Karl Blau
8/10 Jack 20th July 2016
Originally, I was introduced to Karl Blau and his low-key bass playing with Bret Lunsford. Blau certainly has a way with a melody -- he has a musical confidence that allows him to combine deliberate dissonance with transcendent melodies, always with a deep sense of rhythm ("Slow Down Joe" is a prime example). The best songs on Beneath Waves ("Crashing Waves," "My Johnny," "Into the Nada") are melodic and often fun, always with a sense that Blau is in complete control of how he wants to be perceived by the listener.
