Late Night Tales: BadBadNotGood scoring high reviews

By August 8, 2017Listen

 

The latest instalment from the Late Night Tales series comes from hip hopJazz  and Electronica Canadian band Bad Bad Not Good.  Previously the likes of Jamiroquai, Four Tet, the Flaming Lips, Arctic Monkeys, MGMT, Röyksopp, and Nils Frahm have all contributed mixes.  The compilations have established themselves as late night listening essentials. As noted by Pitchfork,

“BADBADNOTGOOD offer an eclectic, uncompromising, and delightful “soundtrack for reflection and meditation.”

“BBNG’s Late Night Tales certainly unwinds as it goes on, getting more and more hushed with each passing moment, but it never settles into any single sonic space, constantly shifting and advancing. The mix’s middle section, which blends disco, bassy funk, and contemporary R&B, builds leisurely to the Beach Boys’ “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)” and Donnie & Joe Emerson’s softly cooing ‘Baby.’ ”
