Sunday ACL Fest Record Reviews

IV (Innovative Leisure)

By Kahron Spearman, October 6, 2017, Music

Toronto jazz-hop quartet Badbadnotgood have graduated, leveling up craft and textural richness on cohesive fourth full-length IV. Saxophonist Leland Whitty's permanent inclusion into the fold stretches and fills out the band's sound, producing rounded, and more sure-footed pieces – as both a traditional band unit and beatmaker hive. The album's best track, smoky R&B-tinged "Time Moves Slowly," features the primal growl of Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring. "Confessions, Pt. II" is a modern epic, highlighting the supreme talents of Whitty and talented reedist Colin Stetson. (6:15pm, Tito's stage)
