- Words: Janet Tzou

Thomas Braun and Till Maragnoli's debut album bubbles over with the kind of smooth, polished production that can't help but sound like the highbrow tunes softly humming in the sleekest lounges. Such an observation would likely dismay these serious producers, whose compositional ear-like so many other Compost artists-leans towards the deeply moody and uncannily beautiful. Legendary jazz singer Andy Bey lends his soulful, buttery vocals to "Western Sunrise," while powerhouse Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreira teams up with his wife, Brazilian jazz vocalist Flora Purim, for "Crian¡a Das Ondas." Check the sweet, '70s-touched soul of "A Hard Night's Day," which droops and sways with an airy, relaxed funk.
