A while ago, I told you to listen to Bodhi. It is a solo project/moniker of one Justin Seymour, otherwise a member of The Room Colored Charlatan. Unlike that band though, who lean on the heavier side of the progressive spectrum, Bodhi is a wonderfully sweet jaunt via the realms of nu-prog. Ever since originally writing about the album, I’ve become somewhat obsessed with it; I just can’t get enough of the great tones and ideas on it. Well, that makes it my absolute pleasure to be premiering the full thing right now, only a few short days before its August 25th release! Head on down below for sweet vibes, great guitar works and sweet, sweet leads.
Not much has changed about the album since we last spoke, naturally, so I won’t bore you with too much detail. I will say, however, that’s there’s a lot to Bodhi which comes forward only on several listens. It contains some interesting callbacks and interweaving of tracks that get somewhat upstaged by its more flashy elements when you listen to it for the first dozen or so times. But, thanks to its short length and the fact that it’s just damn good, many listens are easy to achieve. Once you’re there, a lot more about the album will come forward and you’ll be able to enjoy a whole different levels of its work. Make sure you pre-order it over here and usher out the summer with some sweet jams.
