Swami Lateplate, the heavy and experimental jazz duo formed by New York musicians Bobby Previte on trap drums and Jamie Saft on synths and organs, announces the release of their new album »Doom Jazz II« this September 14th on Subsound Records. Stream the groove-laden debut single »Deception« now!
»Doom Jazz II« continues the epic story of the »Doom Jazz« saga, with Jamie Saft and Bobby Previte trading the slow, sensual lines of »Doom Jazz I« for a more active, muscular sound. Side One, »The New Friend« and »Everyone Is Aware« uses a vintage Yamaha organ to create an atmosphere of mystery and space. Side Two, »Deception« moves into different territory, with Saft’s distorted Hammond organ sailing over Previte’s active, commanding tom-toms in a blues-based jam of wild ferocity and intense foreboding. The plot thickens…
