FREE: Jaga Jazzist – One-Armed Bandit
Norway’s Jaga Jazzist are back with their first fresh material since 2005′s What We Must. Taken from the upcoming album of the same name, One-Armed Bandit is being given away for free by those kind people at Ninja Tune. The album is officially due out on 25th January, and if this first taster is anything to go by, then it’s gonna be bloody amazing!
The track, One-Armed Bandit, dances along a fine balance between retro and futuristic jazz sounds, but naturally it is delivered in the present. Subtle electronic sounds, and that trademark Jaga Jazzist song build-up style, makes for rich results indeed. There’s no doubting the class of both the production and the instrumentation of Jaga Jazzist. I was only wondering just the other day, “whatever happened to Jaga Jazzist?” and now I guess I can stop wondering.
