Forward Thinking

Guided by acclaimed pianist Nitai Hershkovits alongside one third of Buttering Trio, and newly signed Stones Throw recording artist, Rejoicer, this ensemble of musicians have produced a sound which is both delicate yet powerful; sonorous yet uplifting. The full line-up also features reed player Eyal Talmudi, drummers Roy Chen, Amir Bresler and Sol Monk, keyboard master Bemet, trumpeter Sefi Zisling, and guitarist Yonatan Albalak who have together created some of the most exciting instrumental music we’ve heard for quite a while.

A New Sound

‘Writing and compiling together the melodies, lines and harmonies for this album had a pure, natural symbiotic progress. We couldn’t ask for a better variety of people to play with. Being influenced by each other, yet coming from a very different musical background, we managed to find a strong mutual idea of a new sound, in only three days in the studio. This music is a pure reflection of all of us at once. It felt effortless to sit around a piano together and unfolding the next tune, spearheaded with drums and horns to set the exact right scenery we were looking for.’

 

A Time Grove 7-inch single and the album itself will be unleashed in the autumn, but until then get pre-ordering your copy of Time Grove Roots and get yourselves in the mood for some of this year’s most spine tingling underground music.

“Great choices from many of my favourite musicians from Tel Aviv!” Veronique, Radio Krimi (Paris, France)

“If you’re familar with Raw Tapes from Tel Aviv you’ll recognise a collective that has grown from being the local beat scene to a meeting point of producers, jazz artists, vocalists and rappers. And Time Groove is like their supergroup that was formed in 2014 and now signed to the equally maverick label, Wah Wah 45s; if you like, a London equivalent of Raw Tapes (and more).

The definitely a feel of Paper Tiger about this with some deep space jazz. It also helps that one of the bands main movers, Rejoicer, is now on Stones Throw and that’s why

you see Georgia Anne Muldrow on a track called ‘Sattelite Dish’; an electronic jazz trio vibe featuring Nitai Hershkovits on piano.

So whilst there underground West coast hip hop (‘Very Light Blue’ is beautiful) & Catch Your Tears (love it), classical/minimal (Piano Lesson #1), jazz hop (The Navigator – killer Gillesy style tune) and experimental jazz-klezmer beats (Zargesh and Moonlight)

This album is full of craft and instead of me banging on about it for hours, get yourself a listen and then bang on about it for hours yourself; 2018 best of for sure.

Many thanks again
you guys continue to exceed yourselves Love
