Blockhead - Sunday Séance / Jet Son



Blockhead Sunday Seance
Blockhead - Sunday Séance / Jet Son
(12") Ninja Tune ZEN12159, 2004-10-18

Blockhead returns with more of that uplifting melancholy on the aptly titled “Sunday Séance”. Possibly the standout track from his superb, critically-acclaimed debut album “Music By Cavelight”, “Sunday Séance” is a huge mash of harmonica, pitched up vocal wailing and the chunkiest break this side of a Yorkie Bar (for which metaphor I apologise, but I was brought up in the seventies). For added value, though, look no further than Liverpudlian duo Loka, who reimagine the original as a flurry of drums and gorgeous stringiness, once again confirming Ninja HQ’s prediction that they are most definitely Ones To Watch.

Over, things get a little more hip hop, Blockhead taking “Jet Son,” a stone cold groover from the record, re-working it a bit and then adding the inimitable Aesop Rock and fellow Def Jukie Camu Tao for some inspired verbals and even some soulful business..!

Other Blockhead news? The “Music By Cavelight” DVD is coming soon and the first chance to see some of the visuals is on the forthcoming Blockhead/Sixtoo/Signify European tour. Miss ye not…
