Naima – Bye (Cuneiform Records)

Latin, dark, complexity without chaos. Drum textures not to be missed, all players hold it down though. Fun integration of synth and unusual song structure opens this stuff up wide. Lots to like, including “Future Imperfect” (4), Elliot Smith’s “Can’t Make a Sound” (7), Animal Chin (6).
