Info zu Where the Streets Lead

Das neue Album der britischen Cinematic-Trip Hop-Jazz-Pioniere mit Gästen wie Jasper Høiby (Phronesis), Verneri Pohjola, Chris Potter und Sachal Vasandani baut auf ihrem gefeierten Album "Juniper2 von 2018 auf. Inspiriert von den kollidierenden Welten des Jazz und Trip-Hop, sowie dramatisch-orchestralen cineastischen Klangwelten verbindet die Musik von SRC starke Melodien, große Grooves und überraschende Wendungen und ist durchdrungen von expansiver emotionaler Tiefe. Die Musik auf diesem Album, aufgenommen über das gesamte Jahr 2020, umfasst eine große Spannbreite mit einer 8-köpfigen Streichergruppe und einer Liste von Weltklasse-Gästen wie Mark Lockheart, Jasper Høiby, Verneri Pohjola, Chris Potter und Sachal Vasandani, sowie dem inzwischen auch unter eigenem Namen bekannten Band-Gitarristen Stuart McCallum. “Where the Streets Lead” will vor allem die Freude an der Zusammenarbeit vermitteln und, durch seine audio-sensorische Landschaft, auch eine eigene Vision der Welt. Es liegt Kühnheit und Einfachheit in der Konzeption des Albums, mit Liebe zum Detail in Produktion und Sounddesign. Juniper, das letzte Album von Slowly Rolling Camera, hat die Band auf einen neuen Weg gebracht. „Where The Streets Lead“ Lead ist eine natürliche Weiterentwicklung.

String arrangements by Dave Stapleton

Slowly Rolling Camera
a new project that teams pianist-composer Dave Stapleton, producer Deri Roberts, vocalist-lyricist Dionne Bennett and drummer Elliot Bennett, is proof positive that some of the most interesting work often arises from a meeting of many minds. The result is music that has distinct echoes of the ‘invisible soundtracks’ of UK progressives Cinematic Orchestra and Portishead as well as the polychrome textures of maverick Scandinavian artists like Sigor Ros and Oddarrang.

The intricate deployment of glowing keyboard colours and shifting rhythmic patterns imbues tracks such as Temptation and Eight Days In with the kind of stark atmospheres that often define the best scores for both big and small screen. Stapleton’s keyboards and Elliot Bennett’s drums create a wide range of sharp, often crunching timbres that are augmented by Roberts’ artful electronic washes, but it is the presence of guest players, double bassist Jasper Hoiby, guitarist Chris Montague and saxophonist Mark Lockheart that significantly enriches the sound palette. These greatly respected figures in British jazz contribute a heavy, bulky low end, eerie, crackling chords and crystalline solos that make for much more than a cut ‘n’ paste studio session. Their attention to detail is great.

Furthermore, the orchestral scope of the project is epitomized by the lush, plaintive string charts that embellish tracks such as Coin. There is also Dionne Bennett’s measured, highly soulful vocal performance on 21 Nov and Rain That Falls, two gorgeously wistful songs that skillfully weave together understated but nonetheless resonant chord sequences and soaring crescendos.

Slowly Rolling Camera is not a name without meaning. The whole aesthetic of the music vividly suggests a series of frames or images that unfold at a leisurely pace, thus settling strongly into the sub-conscious to reveal layer upon layer of detail. The combination of lean but incisive production and tightly focused live playing has yielded music that has the dot-matrix finesse of the digital age without being bloodless or clinical. Slowly Rolling Camera are purveyors of mysterious audio vignettes that are moulded by a structural sophistication that is plugged straight into the vibrant emotional current of pop culture.
