Image: 1602683 Captain Supernova has re-entered the atmosphere from out of
nowhere with a fantastic new album, titled Doors Of Perception.
An ‘American astronaut’ sent to interact with extraterrestrials using
synthesizers, but also a multi-instrumentalist with high profile
appearances at San Jose Jazz Festival, Rendezvous LA, and
Loftsess under his belt, Captain Supernova has developed a unique
and confident sound that draws upon equal portions of jazz, hip hop,
funk, and synthy trip hop to complete his vision. After the acclaim
and success of his self-released debut Visions of the Unknown –
which made its way on many ‘best of 2014’ lists – Captain Supernova
has adjusted his flight plan to orbit the Cold Busted label. Doors Of
Perception builds on his stunning musicality and deft stylistic fusions
to reveal seven tracks of smooth and uncompromisingly funky jazzinfluenced
The secret weapons in the Captain’s arsenal are an amazing crew
of guest vocalists. Jackie Gage, who was heard on Visions of the
Unknown, contributes her soulful tones to “Only One”, with the lovely
music providing an ample showcase for the Bay Area singer. “Without
Gravity” is a smooth, jazzy wonder that dreamily incorporates the
voice of Notown Sound’s Angela Muhwezi … the result is a fine
sonic approximation of ‘floating.’ Globally active Los Angeles-based
vocalist Laura Mace waxes wistfully with “Leaving The Past Behind”,
capturing a feeling of psychedelic balladry when mixed with Captain
Supernova’s flowing music-field. Also from Los Angeles, Natasha
Agrama collaborates on two very different songs: the late night waltz
“Searching Forever” and the pensive but upbeat groover “Free Fall
(Of Your Soul)”. Despite the variety of vocal contributors, Doors Of
Perception has a cohesive, story-telling sequence, glued together by
Captain Supernova’s smart and melodic arrangements.
So, have a seat in the smoking lounge of Captain Supernova’s star
cruiser, grab a glass of galactic libation, and have a deep listen to
Doors Of Perception. You will be blissfully floating in no time at all.
