Two more nice basslines from a very odd French progressive rock band.
The first track actually has two basses that switch the sharp notes:
This is a type of soul groove, at least one bass is tuned in perfect fifths CGDA, heavy mids cut, high treble and some bass in the EQ. Funky and rolls off smoothly.
The second may be very hard to get into, it’s a dark, droning song, ‘stacked’ tritone melody on the guitar with a heavily syncopated but simple note-wise line but don’t be fooled as it is in an odd meter and the hammer is tricky. The slight drive/fuzz on the bassist’s tone is beautifful. Around 8 minutes there comes a switch that later on gets accelerated and it’s absolutely insane how it pulses with the amazing drums. Listen:
This is a band where even though I am a pick player finger plucking is essential for the tone and attack to get such a sound.
