Tomorrow Is the Answer
This double-CD, two-hour plus musical sojourn is the first full-length release from the trip hop/world beat/jazz band Spicehouse, following their debut extended play CD, Anise Star, also on the Blue City label. Influenced by the unique stylings of musicians as diverse as Ornette Coleman, the Grateful Dead, Eno, Portishead, and Zero 7, the group's sound blurs the boundaries between genres, waxing poetic and waning cool. From upbeat polyrhythmic syncopations to meandering, mystical explorations to sultry, straight-forward sambas, Tomorrow is the Answer raises many a musical question that will leave you listening again - and again. Influenced by the unique stylings of groundbreaking artists from the avant-garde jazz scene of the 1950s to modern day electronica pioneers, Spicehouse is the newest musical venture from Rick Eppedio and C.R. Keyser-Posner, a foray into world beats, acid and traditional jazz forms, and trip hop grooves, filtered through the aural prism of their former bands, Barbarian Lovers and Smoke Ring Days.
