“Five in the Pocket” is a tongue-in-cheek title—having just five (fingers) in your pocket, with a bounce in your step, and walking around in this manner is synonymous with being and feeling “cool” and in your element. Comfortable in your skin. Of course, being truly comfortable in one’s own skin doesn’t mean that the mood will always be relaxed, or that it makes sense to only “go with the flow”. The intensity builds slowly, calmly, and logically, eventually simmering up to fulfill a foreshadowed climax, akin to “losing one’s cool” and maybe wrinkling their suit, only to immediately become self-aware and regain composure, and returning the “five” to the pocket.
these minimalistic drums (and yet super creative and full of polyrythms) combined with catchy basslines and Idris Rahman's extraordinary play make this ep just unique and perfect - highly recommended StrangeFlow
