Karate – Unsolved

Karate bring the shit back to basics, a guitar, a bass, some drums and some vocals. Fortunately what they do with their instruments is anything but basic, majoring in jazz studies at some prestige university these guys blend rock, jazz, indie and blues into one coherant and pleasurable package. This record is certainly a great sampler for getting into these guys – contaning songs ranging from as little as 3 minutes to the epic closing track This Day Next Year clocking in at just under 12 there is something to inspire and feel connected with.

Lead singer Farina called it quicks 2 years ago due to problems with his hearing being developed by the loudness of the bands live show – i don’t really blame him, if I was deaf how could i listen to these warm tunes? Great for a late night drive.
