Tell No Lies - Anasyrma [Aut Records 063]

Scheduled for release on Berlin's Aut Records in collaboration with Fonterossa Records on September 21st, 2k20 is "Anasyrma", the second official album release crafted and created by Bologna-based quintet named Tell No Lies - which would've made a great name for an early 2000s Indie band outfit, btw. Catering a seven track menu over the course of a playtime of roughly 56 minutes the five piece project is in with a swinging approach from the very first bars of the opening piece "Moondays", a well complex piece fusing a certain smoke-induced Cool Jazz-informed late night approach with extended improvisational sequences and therefore laying a foundation for what's to follow subsequently like the more uplifting and dancefloor friendly "Magenta" working its way towards a massive FreeJazz climax, the slightly spiritual "Leili" which seems to ooze positivity and joy from each and every one of its seemingly AfroBeat / AfroJazz influenced notes as well as the beautifully melodic exercise that is "Anteo" which is kinda implementing a cool AF 80s upper class cocktail party vibe without even touching on being Easy for a fraction of a second just to name a few. Check.
