[Review] Yoo Doo Right – A Murmur, Boundless to the East

Yoo Doo Right is an Experimental music trio originally from Québec, Canada with refined sounds with forays into Krautrock and Post-Rock. The new album “A Murmur, Boundless to the East” was released on June 10, 2022 via Mothland and contains 5 long-running tracks, including the final epic of over 16 minutes. A powerful drumming opens the album and the first track “Say Less, Do More,” keyboards and bass are inserted in the background in a musical crescendo. The intensity increases with the passage of the song, from the Post-Rock imprinting, with dilated sounds and modulations, creating interweaving between guitar and keyboards on an energetic and percussive rhythmic session. “SMB” begins with another rhythmic and engaging drumming, characterized by intertwining guitar arpeggios on a background of dreamy sounding keyboards. Also in this piece the intensity increases with the passing of the minutes and with the development of the central theme, with a mixture of dilated sounds, and then returns to the opening drumming and ends. “Dérive” features a more intricate rhythm session and sophisticated guitar and keyboard textures. The structure mainly follows the Post-Rock sounds, with an Experimental touch in the modulations of the keyboard and guitar sounds that are atrtification. The Krautrock nuances of the band’s sound are highlighted in “The Failure of Stiff, Tired Friends” with a retro touch, creating a Cosmic atmosphere. The guitar in the style of Ennio Morricone, a pressing drumming, hypnotic bass lines and a background of keyboards are the ingredients of this piece between retro and modern. The album closes with the epic-track “Feet Together, Face Up, on the Front Lawn” of over 16 minutes in length, which highlights the more Experimental side of the band’s sound. Continuous tempo changes, intertwining and layering of sophisticated and intricate melodies and sounds, with alternating instrumental and sung parts. Long instrumental plots that enhance both the compositional and executive technique of the band, summarizing within it all the facets of the band’s sound. A band that manages to combine retro and modern sounds through their own personal touch, with Post-Rock, Sperimentale and Krautrock coming together. Long instrumental textures and short sung parts characterize the structures of the tracks, developed on the textures and intertwining of guitar and keyboards. The rhythm session is solid with powerful and elaborate drumming and load-bearing bass lines that give body to the songs. A listening recommended for lovers of Post-Rock sounds, enriched with influences from multiple genres and a modern and personal style.
