Bonobo – Days To Come

Bonobo – Days To Come (Instrumental)

Bonobo (Britain’s Simon Green) released Days To Come in 2006, a collection of intricate, sample-heavy jazzy masterpieces that rumble and pop everything from brass to snyths. The album has a hip-hop mentality, with sparse beats keeping the endless layers of dancing guitars and horns in line. It’s one of my favorite albums of the decade, and is a perfect down-tempo relaxant for anyone willing to expand their earlobes. Here’s the title track instrumental…It’s not the most exciting song on the album – “Transmission 94 (Parts 1 & 2)” and “If You Stayed Over (Reprise)” grab that honor – but “Days To Come” (Instrumental) epitomizes the orchestral attention to detail and casual elegance that Green has made his own.
