Single Review – Jagwar Ma – Slipping 

The Sydney recording duo of producer Jono Ma and vocalist Gabriel Winterfield that make up Jagwar Ma will return with their second studio album Every Now & Then on October 14th and as we already know, their 2013 debut Howlin was a brilliant and bold debut. They have since looked set to enhance the psychedelic and dance they plied on their debut with the singles they’ve released so far this year. Now ‘Slipping’ takes over that lead. It opens with hazy electronica and a resonant base sound from which the vocals gently rise. Clarity in these parts of the song grows as the song gradually comes to fruition, with electronic percussion adding a sense of pace to the hazy and unhinged sounds. It becomes pretty standard work from the duo, but it demonstrates a marked improvement in arrangement to match their flair behind their production flair.
