OKP Premiere : Kris Bowers - "Star Glider" (Clever Austin Remix) [Download]
Kris Bowers lends "Ways Of Light" -- the soulful closer to his astral LP Heroes + Misfits -- to the keen producing mind of Hiatus Kayote's Perrin Moss aka Clever Austin for a delightful rework entitled "Star Glider." The original's Jose James- aided croon gets stripped down and embellished with wildly syncopated drums, leaving the lilt of Bowers' piano intact, as the track is transformed into a wholly atmospheric treat, ripe for those hazy end-of-day cool offs. For those New Yorkers who've never had the supreme pleasure of experiencing Bowers' virtuoso licks in the flesh, make sure you catch him May 19th at NeueHouse, as he brings Heroes + Misfits to life with a visual album exhibit, which simply should not be slept on. The LA-born NYC- bred musician's Heroes + Misfits LP is out now on the Concord Jazz imprint and you can cop via iTunes today. Listen to Clever Austin's take on Bowers' "Ways Of Light" below and make sure to cop it for free ninety-nine if its good to ya. Peep the info for the event below as well.
