Download this: 'Jargon' by Seattle's Legato Bebop
"Day in Day Out" by Legato Bebop
"Teacher" by Legato Bebop
Legato Bebop (Patrick John White) is coming out of the Seattle/Bellevue area with an ambient style of music involving rock and hip-hop. Debut album "Jargon" is officially released April 1, but you can stream/purchase here or download for free here. I suggest you do the latter, and then if you like, the former. All songs were written by White, recorded by Dylan Wall (who also plays with White in the band Buster Austero) and mastered by famous grunge producer Chris Hanszek. "Day In Day Out" is the most "rock" song on the album, boiling over from a bed of loops into pounding, echoing drums/guitar/vocals. "Teacher" is instrumental cloud rap with electric guitar sunbreaks. To me, this is springtime music. The way each sound rises out of another reminds me of baby plants pushing through earth. I got hip to Legato Bebop through Casey Catherwood, who brought some early, unmastered Bebop to episode one of The Mezzanine, a thing we do which thou shalt not call a podcast.
