Reverie takes in Brazilian vibes in the lead-off “Estate,” strange tribal drumming on “Her” and “Trop/Cali” speaks for itself. More Balearic than downtempo, it nevertheless pulls in a bit of both, and then some. The sonorous horns on “Her” are a good example of the subtle genre-defying style: what seems straightforward veers toward the margins and what something appears to be is quickly what it is not. “Das Haus” is heavy-as-heaven downtempo roots and probably my favorite track on the EP, but that just counts for today.
