After the folk wave has been ridden on by every bushy-bearded Hipster with plaid shirt and heartbreak-lyrics, the music press has successfully shifted its focus onto a new type of musician: the bedroom-producer with singer-songwriter-tendencies. James Blake is one of them and so is Nicolas Jaar. Even Chaz Bundick has – mind you, long before the deceleration-mania of the other two – produced beats on his laptop. Last year already, the 1986-born lovingly amalgamated digital sound-bits from surf-soundtracks thought lost with warm synthesizers, retained rhythms and scarce vocals. The resut Causers Of This raised grand excitement within and beyond the internet. The successor Underneath The Pine will surely be just as acclaimed as the debut of the graphic designer. This time, Bundick abstains completely from samples. Even the use of up to now scarcely used and cryptic vocal shreds was developed further towards more comprehensibility. Regarding lyrics, Chaz has detached himself from the ever-ongoing woman-topic and now dedicates his songs to friends and family – everything, truly everything, sounds a lot more real. Be it the laid-back Intro/Chi Chi, the spherical Divina or the dreamy Good Hold. Chaz Bundick succeeds to develop his very own sound with Underneath The Pine and even adds something to it.
