Flavour of the month

○○○○●

UNDERGROUND soul jazz act August have magicked up a full LP, It's Not The Wand It's The Magic, to back up the word-of-mouth hype.
Known for their exclusive reclusive live shows in London, August have gathered a reputation for free form musical meanderings.
However their sound here is much more modest than expected - composed of rich, soulful, orchestral and off-beat tracks mostly showcasing the vocals of Vedina Mose.
There are hints at the group's experimental leanings here, which no doubt come to the fore on stage, but the studio album is nevertheless bewitching.
