Adult Jazz

I’ll be the first to admit, it has been a while.  A long, long while.  Things have been a little hectic with finishing up school and figuring out what to do with the rest of life.  But like that stain on the wall that just won’t come out, The Collective Tour is back with new and incredible music to scintillate your ears.  It’s hard to find long sprawling songs that can keep me entertained.  Usually, anything past six minutes is pushing it, but Adult Jazz have just proven a ten minute jam can remain beautiful and interesting from start to finish.  This UK band has only released a handful of singles to date, the 12” “Am Gone” paired with “Springful” and now “Spook” all of which will appear on their upcoming debut Gist Is.  The latest single features mellow but sturdy drums around which flow haunting vocal lines somewhere between Grizzly Bear’s singer Ed Droste mixed with a little Morrissey.  Although these are the most consistent musical elements, the single (if you can call it that) is also graced with quiet pianos, some stellar guitar licks and even horns.  The song never stays in one place for too long, constantly shifting melodies and rhythms, creating a swinging journey that I just can’t get enough of.  Check out the single below and look for the full album on August 4th.
