Here’s a little mix Tamar did for The Jazz Meet, exploring some of the inspirations behind writing our forthcoming 2nd album ‘The Search’:
Thank you nopressurestomp 🙂
I started following On the Corner Records when a guest (Edgar Moon) on my radio show played “Agama” by Collocutor off their debut album “Instead”. Since then I have been a fan. On the Corner don’t conform, they don’t sell out in the name of money. When you allow artists to be creative sometimes they create something brilliant. Take an already great track from the album ” Gozo” produced by Nick Woodmansey (AKA Emanative) give it to The Expansions and hey presto In my humble opinion the best track of the year so far. It has everything I love a driving heavy head nodding drum, amazing brass and electronic drops. I don’t think I’ve had such a positive reaction about a track on my show simply perfection. I’m hoping for them this gets the exposure it deserves so the label can keep doing what they do well, not conforming.

An interview with Tamar on some of the inspirations behind Collocutor, published ahead of the band’s Record Store Day performance at If Music:
“Part jazz, part Dutch minimalism, part Moondog”: how our track ‘Elephant Room’ was described when it was selected to be the BBC Introducing featured track on World on 3 (BBC Radio 3) on 27th March – you can still listen in here:
Thank you BBC Introducing!
