Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #152

April 1, 2016

Continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped me so far, #152 goes to Bonobo, and his third studio album ‘Days to Come’. Released on Ninja Tune 10 years ago, this album came as a delight, a little different from Simon Green’s previous two, but never the less hazy and pensive. Visiting vocalist, Bakja sounds right at home, lending her husky, vigorous vocals – a first for Bonobo. The album also counts with Green’s fellow Brightonian, Fink, who contributes his euphonious voice, building even further on the albums hypnotic aesthetic. The album is fulfilled with the familiar assortment of beautiful, melodic, meditative instrumentals. A full bodied dose of wind instruments, coated with lightness of the string instruments. The backbone of the album lies in the undemanding construction built on layer after layer of simplicity. Multi-instrumentalist Simon Green does not disappoint with this one.
