Music Recommendation – In Quiet Contempt by Subtle People

Very interesting stuff, which comes as no surprise from Subtle People. To call this jazz isn’t exactly accurate, but I wouldn’t call it pop either, nor ambient, but somewhere in the landscape of all three would be more appropriate. At times I feel a later Talk Talk vibe, crossed with David Sylvian, and even Sade occasionally. Consistency in production and style is very strong on this LP, probably stronger than any of Gracer’s other solo works. there’s a strong Film Noir atmospheric vibe going on here and overall the album conveys a real sense of depth and subtlety. This is a great achievement.

Highly recommended.

I stopped by the studio with Key Rings, I think they liked me, what do you think?
