Over the past few years, Matthewdavid's Leaving Records label has come to be characterized not only by the hazy, at times psychedelic quality of its releases, but also by its ability to incorporate a growing number of unclassifiable genres into its tape-rendered catalog. With that in mind, the label's latest release from somewhat mysterious producer/vocalist Jitwam feels right at home. EP track "Rightaboutnow" serves as a fine showcase for Jitwam's refracted take on soul, using a slouching beat made of sharp-cut samples, subtle guitars, and re-pitched hiss to serve as the bed for the man's helium-lifted falsetto vocals. Landing somewhere between the sound of Gonjasufi and just the kind of intriguing weirdness which keeps Leaving Records a consistently intriguing outlet, Jitwam's eccentric TJD001 EP is available now as a cassette and on limited vinyl direct from Jitwam's own The Jazz Diaries imprint, here.
