Warp Trio: Warp Trio’s Pandemic Disco Fantasy (album review by Christa V.)

This album and collaboration was born from the pandemic. Warp Trio had an instrumental album all ready to go, but unable to tour with it, they reached out to vocalist friends and other collaborators to make an album together. Each track has a video that goes along with it, but the songs stand amazingly alone as well. “Captivity” is the opening number that brings you in soothingly, and then escalates to the instrumental craziness that characterizes the rest of the album. The whole project is worth listening to in whole after that, but “The Well” might be my favorite as it hits a great balance of instrumental ambiance with melodic vocals floating on top. “Dragon Dance” brings it back down with soaring strings and percussion sprinkled in to complement it. Many pandemic projects have been incredible to watch, and this is no exception! Favorite tracks: 1, 3, 5
