Gavin Froome Underground Heroes

Publish date:

Froomeís Vancouver roots show on this album, which, like his city, blends influences from around the world. Largely pitched at that delicate point between lounging and dancing, Froomeís third album is consistently excellent, without getting overly consistent. Take ìAll Night,‘ a slowed-down groove that seems paced to take you to dawn, sandwiched between the joyful ìGet Up,‘ with its dancefloor urgings, and ìSouthie,‘ with its fantastic organ and percussion. But the disc has other surprises, as well, from the funky to the deepñsomething few other artists manage to pull off.
