Savor the Bitter:Sweet


Every year I stumble upon a new downtempo, chillout band that rocks. 

This year, I found Bitter:Sweet while shopping at Fred Segal's in LA. Their 2006 classic (Mating Game) was playing in the store (and on sale for way to much money), so I went home a sampled a track via iTunes (Don't Forget To Breath). 

It was trip hop of the finest quality, right up there with Portishead, Sneaker Pimps and Morcheeba. I don't know how I haven't heard of this electronic duo, but they are the freshest sound in this genre since De Phazz.  

Buy the entire CD (Mating Game) and put it on the next time you throw a dinner party. Everyone will groove out and thank you for introducing them to Bitter:Sweet.
