Jim Noir’s lo-fi musical constructions from his suburban studio creates a minimalistic soundscape. Performing the bulk of the music himself A.M. Jazz witnesses the splicing of a variety of musical inputs to fuse an emotional psychedelic offering.

The joyous opening track Good Mood contrasts with the trippy sounding Hexagons, the latter becoming frustrating as it faded out just as Mark Williamson’s guitar solo was hitting its climax. There are some shorter tracks in this collection too, from the lift music stylings of Toll Circle to the all-too-brief interlude of Wonders Amber. By contrast, instrumental Feel OK swirls around in a reflective mood. This is clearly a personal set of tracks that capture a moment in time for the artist.
