Album of the week: DOMi & JD BECK -“NOT TiGHT”
My philosophy of life is don’t take s**t too seriously,” says DOMi Louna, born Domitille Degalle. And that’s fair. But the vibrant world she and her collaborator have given us demands exploration. Their long-awaited debut album — which will be released by Anderson .Paak’s new label APESHIT in partnership with the legendary jazz label Blue Note Records — is an attempt to bottle their goofy, very virtuosic magic. Their music finds both humor and greatness in harmonic complexity and rhythmic shiftiness, abruptly adopting and ditching tempos, toying with time signatures, and sneaking extra beats into bridges. They offer winking breaks and gleeful pivots, but the album is more composed than anything they’ve done before, toying with pop structures and pretty restraint.
