I’m sure I’ve mentioned this many times before, but one of the first things that draws me to any music is the beat..and this song has a cool beat! Not only that, when I tracked down the accompanying video earlier, I was delighted at what I found….
Gladys Lazer, aka, Gal Lazer, is a Tel Aviv-born songwriter and drummer whose music is inspired-by and born out of his global nomadic wanderings and time spent travelling the world solely on music. Candy World/Bye Past is the title of his debut EP which was released last month and recorded in Sao Paolo, Brazil and in the countryside of Southwest Georgia. Consisting of 8 instrumental tracks, Lazar’s EP boasts an array of musical styles, combining break beat, post-jazz, krautrock and trip-hop; each song pivoting around experimental rhythms and electronic dreamscapes.
Lead single Veronica is an energised trip into Lazar’s rhythmic world and this is a place I’d like to explore more! Cascading melodies trickle ornately around a fast-paced beat and its all about the rhythm, I love that it’s all about the drums and I love this video!!…Check it out above and you will see what I mean.
Candy World/Bye Past is out now and can be streamed/purchased from Gladys Lazar’s Bandcamp page here.
