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.

Morcheeba - Dive Deep

None April 24th, 2008


Take the advice of this album's title, and immerse yourself in its aural anesthetic, awash with stress-numbing melodies and crystalline production.

Morcheeba was formed in the mid-Nineties as a trip-hop trio, but since has evolved into a more sonically experimental sibling duo with a notably mature sound. Gone are the vocal-driven singles like "Trigger Hippie" or "The Sea;" although the songs still front words, they're in support of the work as a whole, rather than driving them.

"Enjoy the Ride" opens the disc, with a mid-tempo shuffling beat and semi-sunny groove, supplemented by guest singer Judie Tzuke. Her laid-back performance is bested, however, by another visitor: Norwegian musician Thomas Dybdahl, whose rich throat lends gravitas to the gorgeous melodies of "Riverbed," a electronic-based ballad that sparkles with feeling.

Elsewhere, "Run Honey Run" finds Morcheeba under a slight country influence, while "Thumbnails" and "The Ledge Beyond the Edge" let Paul and Ross Godfrey work out their DJ skills in instrumental territory, to great effect.
