Here’s a lovely tune to start your Monday. Adam here to share Bedouine‘s “One of These Days” as my DJ pick of the week. Her debut self-titled LP dropped in June, but the whole record sounds like fall to me.
Bedouine has a sound. Sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool. Lithe guitar picking and precise lyrical excursions. That mesmerizing voice and phrasing. Eschewing notions of nomadic chic, Bedouine represents minimalism motivated by travel, paring down and paring down until only the essential remains. Her music establishes a sustained and complete mood, reflecting on the unending reverberations of displacement, unafraid to take pleasure along the way. Listen to her single “One Of These Days” and let us know what you think!
