Birdsong by Abyss
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Buzzin' Fly
Ever shuttling between the acoustic and the electronic, Ben Watt -- half of Everything But the Girl, head of the housey Buzzin' Fly label -- knows the importance of piano in dance music. Back in 2004, he released Justin Martin's "Sad Piano," a masterful pairing of jacking drums and melancholy trills; now he gives us "Birdsong," by Italy's Abyss, with languid chords buttressed by a muscular left-hand line. Flowers and Sea Creatures' remix swaps the original's determined skip for a shoegazing shuffle; a rework by Walls member Snoretex picks up the Chicago thread again, lo-fi but high-tension.
