Sound Liberation & Di. J. Quartet’s latest album is a blend of eclectic sounds and fearless experimentation that takes you through the musical journey toward myriad feelings like colors in a kaleidoscope, with each new song being completely different from others. The album starts off with a playful fanfare in the opening notes of “The Overtures” that soon turns into an electric guitar accompanied by horns and electronic samples, giving it orchestrated sound.
“Density Intensities” is similar in this regard: moody and ambient, coupled with an irresistibly groovy beat. With the inclusion of glitchy vocals that border on being rapped this stands out as a stylish piece. ManChartra is darker, with a cosmic feel and compelling trumpet lines that will pull the listener into an eerie odyssey—a standout.
“MMM” presents soulful 20th century blues vocals in a nostalgically beautiful setting. “Illusions Yet Again” blends ethereal tones with lo-fi hip-hop percussion, demonstrating the ability of this band to merge contrasting elements seamlessly. The peak of the album is reached with “Deep Time 2,” a folk-jazz song that has a glowing and tropical trace.
Sound Liberation & Di. Quartets are very commendable for their ability to break the boundaries of music while maintaining accessibility. Gene Pritsker and his quartet have created a sort of album that can not be categorized, using rock’s energy with the improvisation feel like in jazz music as well as hip-hop rhythm. ‘Each track serves as a proof of their musical talent , with an interesting aroma of surprise that accompanies the listener throughout.
The album has a total of 6 songs on it and spans over 42 mins and 46 secs, the first song on the album “The Overtures” is the lengthiest, but surprisingly the sound doesn’t bore you and before you realize the song has ended. I like the fact most of the songs on the album are long enough to enable the listener really soak into the soak.
This album isn’t simply another collection of songs; it is a sonic expedition that appreciates the charm of the enigmatic. Sound Liberation calls on you to enter the universe of energetic and dynamic music they create, every track holds a finished product waiting for exploration. If, however, you intend this year to branch out musically speaking – look no further because this album is a genius of experimental greatness.
