/fyoog/ – “Better”

The opening track off Temp’rall Sho’gazing, the new album from New Orleans-based jazz/blues duo /fyoog/, “Better” is a great example of the project’s gripping and unique sound. Project co-founders Katarina Boudreaux and Sam Tepper embrace the spontaneous, improvisational tendencies of jazz while retaining an accessible melodic backbone. Such is evident on “Better,” which ventures into jam-friendly territory in its second half, following a melodic initial stir. Boudreaux’s vocals provide a gripping, precise presence. “This is the first collaborative project I have embarked on,” Boudreaux says. “Sam walked in on a gig, and we’ve worked together ever since. The three originals are co-written, and it is the first album I have not played keys on (three previous studio albums).”

“Better” and other memorable tracks released in July can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
