Pharaohs – Island Time [ESP014]

Pharaohs is a live band from Los Angeles including blossoming producers Suzanne Kraft, Ale Cohen and surfer/synth-geek, Sam Cooper. Side A leads with “Ahumbo” (named after Sam’s dream beach in Zanzibar), blending a dry and simplistic rhythm section with swelling synth chords, a cheeky vocal and a vibrant surf guitar. The title track “Island Time,” a bouncy jungle vibe with chant about tropical fruits, a reminder that its always Summer somewhere. Side B doles out “If It Ever Feels Right,” a percussive House jam that is literally a JAM.
