The Third Arrangement give us a whole lot of ‘Rosie’

The Third Arrangement formed as a four-piece in South Jersey in 2016, around keyboardist and song-writer Nathan MacAdams and guitarist Frank Morley. Growing in numbers at the same time as in influences and scope, they’ve become a fine, innovative Acid Jazz-styled group, taking in rock guitar, funk, and of course jazz. ‘Rosie’ is a prime example of their art, with elements of Ben Folds, bits of Dave Brubeck, touches of JD McPherson, and occasional flashes of J. Mascis guitar breaks, all mixed in with storytelling, narrative lyrics.

‘Rosie’ is a beautiful mix of jazz guitar, flashes of rock flourish, and Rhodes piano, mellow and outlandish at once, all wrapped around the overall sound of a band that’s utterly aware of the sum of its parts; tight, assured, and with some serious groove. ‘Rosie’ is smooth, composed, with a lovely minor third rise and drop, and some absolutely filthy piano licks to compliment the sexy-as-hell guitar-work.

The Third Arrangement released their debut EP “Scarecrows” in 2019, and are currently recording more singles for release later in 2021; on the basis of this, we’re all going to need to get our hands on every last one of them.

Take a metaphysical cruise with Bad Wolf’s house mix ‘High Street After Dark’

Through a combination of acid jazz, Japanese city pop, indie dance, early house music and a few nyctophile tendencies, Bad Wolf sent an invitation to metaphysically cruise through urban streets with their latest house mix ‘High Street After Dark’.

The entrancing instrumental mix almost allows you to see car headlights trail by as you enjoy the sense of desolation on the streets where rampant consumerism thrives. The Manila-based artist and producer is discernibly a cut above the rest when it comes to sharing artistic vision through immersive soundscapes which are a pleasure to be consumed by.

High Street After Dark is now available to stream via SoundCloud.
