"Who is this!?" Whether it's a playlist in a coffee shop in Brooklyn, a cafe in Paris, or a commercial break on NPR, the answer is likely Menahan Street Band.
Their idiosyncratic brand of atmospheric instrumental music has lended its timeless cool to countless events, parties, et al. Now they're back with yet another two sided head-turner.
From the heavy drum fill at the top, to the swirling, psychedelic outro, Midnight Morning is a beat-forward track blending trippy synths with lush horns that sonically beckon you to get lost in its euphoric swing. Steppin Through Shadow paints a cinematic dreamscape that floats along a surreal plume of hypnotic drum machines, and soft, electric piano.
The gentle melody and operatic vocal accompaniment disarm, leaving the listener awash in a sea of aural nirvana.
