If you like bands that combine rock and jazz with emotional sensitivity, we recommend that you listen to the new album of Chief Broom, a group from Boise, Idaho, United States, and here we will tell you and more on this material.
The album is a work that shows the daily life of its members, with their ups and downs, their conflicts and their hopes. Chief Broom describes himself as a heart-core and spazz-jazz band, two genres that mix the intensity of hardcore with the experimentation of jazz. This lovingly crafted album was painstakingly completed after the passing of bandmate TJ Tuck, by his friends, family and bandmates to honor his legacy and commemorate his profound impact on the Boise music scene.
The album begins with “snuff (prologue)”, which is an introduction that shows the origin of the band, audios that recall the childhood of the Tuck brothers, and prepares us for the great journey that awaits us, where “hidden sa” from “plain sight (walking away)”, the song that gives the album its name, has a nostalgic sound but maintains musical energy. Another song that stands out is “suspended in the air (interlude)”, as the name says, this is an interlude that gives us a break between the intense, an instrumental piece with piano and strings that take us to the world of fantasy and nostalgia. We will write about each of the songs but we want you to enjoy them yourself.
It should be noted that the recording was done by his father Terre Tuck in Star, Idaho, in 2019, and the mixing and production by Sonny DiPerri. Here we leave you with this album which, believe me, is an unparalleled listening experience. This group combines a deep emotionality with a strong energy that captures you from the first dimension.
