Lexiglass - Shade of Blues (Cassette)

$9.99

For the third installment of their raw, analog Cubetazo mixtape series, Lexiglass stretches out on a set of improvised keys-and-drums originals, interspersed with new spins on classics by Blu & Exile, Biz Markie and Madlib, whose remix of Bobby Hutcherson’s “Montara,” from Shades of Blue, inspires the tape’s longest cut and album cover. The Blue Note vibe is prevalent throughout, as the band’s close listening reveals its jazz roots: keyboardist Alexis Marcelo goes all-in at their first recording session with a grand piano, and drummer Will Glass bends Purdie- and Mason-style breaks into new and different shapes. The blues makes a fresh appearance, as necessitated by the historical moment.
