BadBadNotGood Returns With “Talk Memory”

BadBadNotGood: Talk MemoryBadBadNotGood’s signature blend of jazz and hip-hop has led them to work with some of the top rappers in the game including Ghostface Killah and MF Doom. The Toronto-based trio now has a new instrumental album called Talk Memory that leans more on the jazz side of things and features guest Arthur Verocai, the renowned Brazilian composer.

“Arthur Verocai is a legend. He’s such an incredible arranger and composer, and part of so many important records coming out of Brazil,” bassist Chester Hansen told Complex. “It was an honor to work with him. He’s been such a big influence of ours, almost ever since we started the band, ever since someone showed us his music.”

Hansen went on to say that the record features concise writing with more improvisation. Check out his effortlessly cool bass lines on “Beside April”:

BadBadNotGood will be hitting the road starting in December to support the new record. Talk Memory is out now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
