05-06-2013 // Album, North Sea Jazz: BADBADNOTGOOD - BBNG2


One of the upcoming highlights for North Sea Jazz 2013 in July is the concert on Friday by BADBADNOTGOOD. Their 2nd album BBNG2 is addicitive as hell and it rocks like crazy. Their sound reminds me a lot of the early days of Bad Plus, but with more hiphop in their sound.


BADBADNOTGOOD does 6 covers on this album and 5 tracks of their own. The new tracks are as good as the covers, the only difference is that the new tracks are not very familair on first spins. The best way to tackle that problem is by listening to this album A LOT. Like I've done over the last two weeks.


Their covering skills are best heard in their brilliant copy of James Blake's "Limit To Your Love" and "Flashing Lights", originally done by Kanye West. It has that same melodic somewhat dark feel to it the live-version holds (the original album version is pretty boring..). And it's really amazing that the vocals are not being missed at all on these tracks. That's good instrumental covering for ya.

You can download BBNG2 for free via http://badbadnotgood.com/ and enjoy this great album anywhere you like. It's perfect for training, working, relaxing, dancing, reading the paper, lounging in the sun, doing the laundry and probably a lot more. Can't wait to see them live next month, but for now this is a GREATFUCKINGALBUM. GOODGOODNOTBADATALL.
