TAMTAM "Ramble In The Rainbow" PPU-108 TOKYO MODERN SYNTH SOUL 12" EP

  • $ 14.99


The Tokyo based soul outfit, TAMTAM as featured on bandcamp weekly

2024年、TAMTAMは新作EP『Ramble In The Rainbow』を米レーベルPeoples Potential Unlimitedよりリリースする。初の海外リリースとなった本作は、かつてないほど幻想的な浮遊感に包まれ、またもジャンルのボーダーを超える存在感を放っている。
歌詞は極めてプライベートな出来事をきっかけに魂や死、自然といった大きく抽象的な概念を介した寓話のように綴られる。サウンド面ではSun Ra、Lee “Scratch” Perry、清水靖晃や鈴木良雄などが影響元に挙げられており、バンドの要となるグルーヴはそのままに更にドープになった演奏が印象的。以前からの持ち味であるレゲエやソウル、ジャズ的な要素に加えニューエイジ音楽的な発想が巧みに掛け合わされた、バンドの成熟を感じさせる怪作となっている。

_______________________________________________________________

A four-piece band based in Tokyo.
Initially playing reggae/dub music, the band gradually developed into an innovative fusion of diverse musical influences, such as jazz, soul, psyche pop, new age, and exotica.  A sound is based on groove and euphoria, with nostalgic melodies.
They have performed at iconic events in Japan such as Fuji Rock Festival, and also have been looking overseas since they performed in Canada(Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver) in 2019. The new EP "Ramble In The Rainbow"(2024) is their first international release on the US label Peoples Potential Unlimited.
The work shows their musical maturity, drawing inspiration from Sun Ra, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Yasuaki Shimizu.
