Hot New Local Singles: HEYARLO

From the Desk of Sean McPherson:

I expect new projects to often sound overly ambitious at their first couple stabs at studio recording. There’s a desire to impress each other, a desire to make it count cause who knows how long the project will last. I hear the opposite in HeyArlo. With two songs released the band sounds comfortable creating and solving small problems for themselves. They lay out a groove, find the borders of it and offer up a story within the groove. The effect of HeyArlo is measured, gorgeous and memorable. Drop an extra star on Evan Slack for his softly auto-wah pyrotechnic solo that still stays true to the overall texture of the groove. This week’s single is “Chanting & Gossip.” Now let’s get a full length out before I turn 50 please.

Hot New Local Singles highlights new, local songs. Minnesota has a lot of great jazz, funk, soul, and jazz- adjacent music. Jazz88 is highlighting what is fresh.
