The Natural Yogurt Band – Braile, Slate & Stylus

It’s been a minute since we’ve caught wind of the amazing sounds of The Natural Yogurt Band and after two albums on Jazzman Records and Now-Again Records and two EPs since their arrival on Black Milky-way Music, The Natural Yogurt Band strikes again but this time with a third full-length album. It’s incredible in every way as to be expected given the bands history in creating libray’esque sounds with perfection.

Those classy, groovy melodies coming out of Miles Newbold’s mind ride along with both Neil Tolliday’s drumsticks. Halfway between their studio in UK and a distant galaxy, sounds from Braille, Slate & Stylus are echoing, resonating, creating a highly psychedelic soundscape. This album slowly fades from funky tunes, African-oriented grooves and smooth library music to a more absurd, free and contemporary vision of jazz. The last four tracks consist of drum breaks that set a sudden ending point to this long yet too short journey in outer-space.
