Inspired by Brownswoods Recordings' We Out Here compilation (2018), Byrd Out has pulled together a compilation featuring some of the emerging artists on the bill for Walthamstow Jazz Festival, straddling Leeds, Bristol, and London. Pyjæn seamlessly melds funk, Afro-beat, and contemporary sounds with nods to hip-hop and disco, whilst acknowledging the traditional era of 1920s jazz and dance music. Ezra Collective's Dylan Jones leads the band. The Leeds-based seven-piece band Têtes De Pois, is rife with catchy horn lines and driving chord progressions. Dulahli and Hey Fish continue the Leeds connection, hailing from the nascent label Tight Lines. Run Logan Run and Waldo's Gift come from the West, both building a fair degree of improvised interplay into their sets. Run Logan Run's use of looping is particularly striking, and Waldo's Gift create genuinely beautiful music on the fly. Artwork by Oliver Bancroft.
