Album Review
Reviewed 2001-09-02
Euphone - a Chicago ensemble employing guitar, sax, string bass, keyboards, and various organic and electronic drums to create groovy instrumental tracks. Sometimes it wants to sound like jazz-heavy post rock, ie Isotope 217; other times Prince without the vocals. Also calls to mind Trans Am, but still genreless enough to have broad appeal. Love this album more and more the longer I listen to it. -nari

1> Sounds like an 80s era dance track

2,5> These are both in the same vein - perky, quick tempo dances

*3> So very funky; you can't resist this bass line

4> 1:20 of the same looped idea.

*6> Saxophones, conga, drums, and upright bass come together for jazzy, mellow results.

7> Mellow, languid, lonely theme develops into fiesty ending.

*8> Lays some sonic textures over a heavy beat and funky bassline

9> Vibes carry the tune in this playful track

*10> Groovy, suspenseful theme snakes along to a slick conclusion

*11> Total dream sequence music - airy, ethereal. Ends abruptly.

*12> Best track on the album. Just a melancholy, jazzy little sketch. I see it all the time on Napster as the Euphone song ppl keep.

13> The echo-reverb decay at the end is beautiful.
