The Internet – Mood.
The Internet drops a new song called Mood. The new song “Mood” doesn’t feel forced or rootsy like some of the group’s material in the past. In the lead up to Hive Mind’s release it had seemed like Syd had faded into the background with other members of the group such as Steve Lacy taking up more space.
Songs like “Mood” really demonstrate how much the group’s female falsetto has risen since her days as The Kyd, not only because she is exploring more adult subject matter, but because she’s earned her rites of passage. The seamless transition from “Mood” to “Next Time/Humble Pie” is so seamless I’m tempted to blur the boundaries set by the group, and rename the whole passage “nice smelling flowers.”
