Now Hear This: Tiny Legs Tim | Call Us When It’s Over

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “After three months of total isolation and not being able to jam or play at Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Club in Ghent — or any other place for that matter — Tiny Legs Tim and his friends decided to book a weekend at The Yellow Tape studio. They wanted to capture the emotional high of finally playing together again. A simple live setup, a ’60s Faylon mixing desk and an old 24-track tape machine were used to record this outburst of musical joy.

During that weekend Tim and his musicians reached that point of ‘locking together’ they experienced so often playing late nights at a packed and steamy Missy Sippy. Imagine when four musicians act as one in an energetic dance with the audience, led by the sultry beats of the drums (Bernd Coene), the dirty grooves of the bass (Mattias Geernaert) and the inciting dialogue of the guitars (Toon Vlerick & Tiny Legs Tim).

At the moment these kind of scenes and carefree celebrations of life and music seem like a thing of a long gone past, but as Tim puts it: “We’re always ready to roll, call us when it’s over.” In the meantime, the listener gets a first-hand experience of the positive energy and joy of making music on the spot with a selection of spontaneously arranged songs: some new, some old and one cover by the late R.L. Burnside.”
