I’ve been listening to Georg Hekt or versions of Georg Hekt for several years now. He is one of the cofounders of Stigae Music that seems to release Hekt or closely-related Hekt music. He is also one of the artists whose music I absolutely adore. That said, the 15 releases on Stigae Music are required for you netlabel music library. Each of the releases is that good.
A long nine months has gone by since Hekt’s last release Another Fish Fight (Stigae Music), so I was delightfully surprised to see the Georg Hekt’s Three Before Ten (Stigae Music) was released two days ago. Hekt’s past releases have bordered on the jazzy, but Three Before Ten is much more beat-y, more downtempo. But fans of Hekt’s earlier work shouldn’t be wary as this 5-track EP has some glorious hidden melodies which are a direct result of his earlier jazz pieces. As I said earlier, this is a required download.
Tracks: 01. Bossa In My Kitchen (mp3), 02. Shh! Don’t Wake Up The Neighbours (mp3), 03. While You Were (Not Exactly) Here ( mp3), 04. All Of You (mp3), and 05. Fading Memory Of Lake And Sunset ( mp3).
