With Poule d’Or in its 8th year of existence (cheers), it is about time to expand our musical horizons a little bit. Eight years are a long time and Team Poule has aged at least as much. So from here on out, every now and then, a bit of a jingle and jangle will be thrown into the occasional morceau du jour, from piano led rag time and sweaty saxophone vibes to burly bass lines and banging bongo drums.
First off the bat is London’s Leifur James. Attached is his debut track Time – a layered mix of styles, melting jazz, soul and ambient influences. What’s most striking, he plays all the instruments himself, quite the orchestra. He knows time! Team Poule says, let’s see how this goes.
