KWJAZ – KWJAZ (2011)

December 2, 2011


This self-titled cassette is, as far as I can tell, the debut release of KWJAZ, as well as the first recording released by new label Brunch Group. I don’t know anything about this artist, and an internet search didn’t reveal much except for a scattering of people raving over this obscure little tape. KWJAZ evokes an impressive psychedelic atmosphere, a mood which is perhaps enhanced somewhat by the anonymity of its creator – extended, hazy dub beats as a backdrop to ‘outsider music’, jazz, and general psychedelia from all over the world, designed as far as one can tell for mind-melting introspection. What strikes me about this release is that contrary to a lot of music of its kind, it’s not “experimental” at the cost of lacking direction, but rather seems to be a guided journey through some legitimately focused, but rarely explored, ideas. This is some deeply groovy, trippy shit – roll something up for this one.
