Jeff's Weekly Pick: Bonobo @ The Casbah Tuesday April 20, 2010

British trip-hop chill out master Simon Green will bring his full band Bonobo this Tuesday to San Diego's premier venue for intimate shows. Initially Green used a lot of sampling in what was mainly a solo project. With the release of his fourth LP, Black Sands, no new real ground has been broken here. Rather, it is the familiar warmth of his songs that pulls you in and keeps you in his world. Bonobo is all about textured music and he is at the top of his game in this genre. When one excels at a certain style, there is no need to stray too far from what one does best.
In an era where noise rock, yelling (vs singing), and deadening the ears seem to be in vogue, relax and take it down several levels this Tuesday. Your ears and your heart will both thank you.

Yppah sets the stage.
