Migration Climate “Highly Recommended” Endless Crate
"Gerald Bailey’s 𝘔𝘪𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘊𝘭𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦 is a jazz album, but not in the traditional sense. Centered around dusty drums, recycled instruments and brassy horns, it’s rooted in a grimy kind of jazz that creates a bluesy, careworn sound. Highly recommended." Album Link
“Rain Party” Release on May 10
Rain Party is a follow up single to the sold out vinyl LP, Migration Climate. Thumb piano lines create polyrhythmic counterpoint that sounds like falling rain. The heavy drums are a nod to rainmaking rituals from Africa and North America. Link to Stream Pre-Save
