Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

The Baldwin Brother-Return of the Golden Rhodes


None October 19th, 2006

TVT

Some will never give The Baldwin Brothers a chance on name alone. It's their loss, for these Baldwins are not preening, fatuous members of the Hollywood acting dynasty, but a snappy, headstrong Chicago-based duo with a diabolical bent for heady brews of electronic-based jazz-funk.
 
Like their 2002 debut, the long-in-development follow-up "Return of the Golden Rhodes" offers nü-lounge tracks with traces of Seventies kitsch plopped atop a forever-melodic bed of beats. Amidst samples and scratches, their signature Rhodes electronic piano bounces throughout like a party host in a smoking jacket, at the ready to fill your glass or crack a joke.
 
Mostly instrumental, "Return" boasts guest stars when appropriate, including members of Queens of the Stone Age, Basement Jaxx and Lo-Fidelity Allstars. If no collaboration quite reaches the giddy heights of their debut's "Dream Girl," it's not for a lack of trying. Winning, infectious "¦ and not a Stephen among them.
