Music Video: The Jack Moves - Time & Enemy
Wax Poetics Records' duo The Jack Moves placed a strongly evocative musical marker with their first releases, reminding of the very best instincts of classic funk and soul as they teased out the fine balance between reverent homage and contemporary relevance. With singer/multi-instrumentalist Zee Desmondes and drummer/producer Teddy Powell finding a musical marriage of the minds, they conjured up an eclectically inspired amalgam of 60's and 70's r'n'b and soul, funk and hip-hop infused grooves that was equally adept at touching the soul and moving the feet. Having received a nod from Snoop Dogg, The Jack Moves returned recently with the warm bass groove, funky guitar motif and tender horns of 'Time & Enemy''s observance of a curious, willing heart as it queries if what it feels is real. Recorded on a four-track tape machine in the garage, the video was shot by director Mohamed Chakiri using an old VHS camera to complement the throwback vibe of the tracks old-school ethos.
