A jazzy acid trip
Of all genres, I'm likely the least qualified to write about jazz. Still, the modern, experimental energy and driving beat behind "Snowfall by North Dakota's Girls Drink Free is worthy of at least an attempt. During eight and a half minutes of a never-changing, simple four-to-the-floor drumbeat, the band moves through a series of synthesizer solos, piano solos, and back to synth. And that's it. Never more than two instruments at a time, the song relies on hip, experimental jazz chords and progressions, providing a vast journey of auditory intellectual stimulation and urban sensibilities. Any fans of contemporary jazz are sure to enjoy the skills of this (or these) keyboard wizards.
"Snowfall" would be an excellent theme song for A New York café
The most impressive instrumental/vocal performance in this recording is The piano solos
