4 stars Should this be noted as a live album, remake, best-of collection, or what? It doesn't matter in the end. During one weekend session, taking place at the Pachyderm Studio, they are performing carefully selected songs from their first two albums, which were originally released around the years 2014 and 2015. Though not exclusively. On top the quartet delivers three previously unreleased recordings which are intended to appear on the upcoming third studio album. This certainly makes curious. And indeed, first of all, the whole thing sounds completely rounded. A special snapshot, based on the same team spirit, when considering the short-timed circumstances.

While being completely instrumental in the making, those eight songs are showing a balanced relationship of composition and improvisation overall. First one and newbie Mother Tongue then explicitly proves what I mean. A main frame, rich in variety, shines while coming along with a clever space jam in between. Appealing, piano and electric guitar are perfectly complementing. Taken from the debut album 'Beyond the Visible Light' next one Raviji sounds matured concerning the fine-tuning. They are able to hold up this high level towards the finale. What basically means the songs constantly are featuring a rather complex fundament, instrumental virtuosity and enough catchy moments. Highly recommended.
