Sad City, “Night Time Trail” MP3

November 11, 2011



Sad City first thrilled us with a bait-and-switch, flipping the rhythm of his song "Jaya" from plaintive calm to global carnival midway, like two songs in one. On "Night Time Trail," a song from his Underwater Peoples EP Gestures, the Glasgow-based musician flattens that technique like a pancake, introducing you to all of the song's danceable beats from the very beginning. Playing around with these flute-y grooves and moods could turn out so serious, so New Age, but Sad City's touch is light, less something you'd hear while shopping for bonsai tree water fountains and more something you'd hear at the giggly end of a long night of fruity cocktail drinking.
