Earth Tones 2LP
Brooklyn duo ‘Earth Boys’ bring chilled sexy vibes from dreamland on their 3rd LP titled Earth Tones LP, an easy listening, unpretentious, 90’s inspired house record all the way from New York City to the world via Shall Not Fade
Earth Boys aka Julian Duron and Michael Sherburn pay homage to the West coast on this LP starting in Northern California with thick, swirling opening track ‘Sonoma’ – a stripped back, sultry dubby number with just enough pace. Blending pool-side sax with steely percussion and vocals drenched in the day’s last golden moments. Sugary ‘I Just Love It With You’ is a loved-up house cut blooming with warmth – one to serenade your lover, friend, dog with. On the flip, ‘Mushroom Cloud’ takes the b-side into trippier, groovy territory. Float away on the cloud, through shimmery pads, exotic percussion and classic vox lines. Understated ‘Amazon Prime Jungle’ is a sleepy, dreamy jungle roller that delivers on all fronts. More sax laced, beach-front feels come courtesy of title track ‘Earth Tones’, an easy going, lush sundowner to soothe your soul. C2 ‘Battery Boys’ is a real beauty, keys tinkle against the amazonian backdrop in this nature inspired number. ‘On A Limb’ is a ‘softly, softly’ track – electronics tickle a 4/4 beat on this real nice cut – DJ tool tip! Rounding off the LP, ‘Los Angeles’ is a rich, smooth jazzy house number. Two digital only bonuses just make this thick honey house music long play even sweeter.
