Charles Murdoch | Light Words VAO (f. Steffaloo)

Charles Murdoch released his debut EP, “Weathered Straight” (Future Classic label), a short but sweet four-song welcome into his jeweled ambient-music world. Those four tracks aren’t clumsy club beats for late-night drunkards to trip and stumble onto the dance floor with. There’s a living-breathing sophistication to this EP. It daydreams, ruminates, seduces, luxuriates and washes over. The style is subtle, airy and uncluttered. The two best tracks are the ones where Murdoch seems extra-inspired by his guests, like the soft, percussive love taps accenting Oscar Key Sung’s soulful vocals on “Dekire”. Or take the beautiful blend of vocals and instrumental in “Light Words VAO”, a song fluffed by the pretty voice of Steffaloo, whose skills are made even more evident by the number of times another musicians have asked her to sing on their songs.
