Rudy makes a welcome return on FAR taking in the atmosphere of sunnier climes. It’s tropical island life with a twist of European sophistication from the swirling cicadas and exotic rhythms of the title track, through the hypnotic sigh of “Sky Goddess”.
The flip side dives headfirst into the refreshing guitar groove of “Shimmering Coast”, dropping anchor at the exotic “Fortune Lagoon”, before sailing back to harbour with the evocative live chorus bass and lilting Fender Rhodes of “Body Wave”.
Rudy’s “By Nature” manages to mix a cocktail of Balearic perfection that sounds like Grace Jones serenading on the beaches of Formentera. Do not miss this!
