I stumbled across Joe Bourdet a few days ago while er… stumbling about on Spotify.
I had no idea who he is but this lovely West Coast groove got my attention.
The songs are titled Seamist and El Capitan and have this week been released as a limited edition 45rpm double ‘A’ sided single.
Very lovely, I thought on first listen…
Anyhow a day later my mate texted me to the fact he’d heard this great artist Joe Bourdet and it was worth checking out.
Coincidence or just plain good taste? I think I’ll go for the latter…
Naturally I went back to listen. And listen again. And again…
And wow! What I thought was a nice gentle groove is actually two of the best songs I’ve heard in a long, long while. Beautifully crafted, exquisite musicianship and a sound that could have been recorded any time during the last 50 years.
Give them a listen and simply drift off to that Californian beach with the breeze in your hair and the sand between your toes while the surf rolls in.
