#35: BadBadNotGood (ft. Charlotte Day Wilson) – In Your Eyes

 

Toronto quartet BadBadNotGood have been ploughing away for years now in the Canadian jazz and hip-hop scenes, bringing the two disciplines together with their predominantly instrumental wizardry. This year, their album ‘IV’ saw them reaching out for collaborations to jazz supremo Colin Stetson, Future Islands frontman Sam Herring and rapper Mick Jenkins, and its ever-changing mood somehow comes together to form one of the year’s most outstanding albums. The most ear-catching track is actually this collab with up-and-coming songstress Charlotte Day Wilson, and it saw them breaking into radio playlists that had previously eluded them. It’s a modern twist on the smoky jazz club torch song, and comes near the climax of the album’s extraordinary multi-genre running order.
