TM Juke Maps From the Wilderness

TM Juke debuts a wistful album of Sunday afternoon lullabies for quality downtempo imprint Tru Thoughts-heavy on the sampled atmospherics yet with enough live edge to keep the music from becoming Muzak. Maps is split down the middle between instrumental tracks (like the sweet, jazzy Remember 99" or the lazy, reverb-drenched "Just For A Day") and vocal jams featuring Del-esque MC Bread & Water and Alice Russell-whose sassy and commanding delivery made the Quantic Soul Orchestra album sizzle-here scat-singing through "Playground Games." Message to Tru Thoughts: keep it coming!
