The members of Jai Alai know how to evoke a mood. Their songs are shimmering, warm, and slippery, the perfect soundtrack for introspective rainy days or dreamily soothing commutes. The cozy bass rumbles along, providing an elastic background for washes of electronics, sprinkles of guitar, and whispers of vocals. Breathy voice adds an appropriate touch of smoke to crisp guitar and tight percussion. The resulting blend of post-rock and electronic music sensibilities is both creative and comforting.

    I saw their first-ever show, in Feb. '99 at the Mermaid Lounge, opening for Macha. Macha's set was maybe the most amazing one I've ever seen, but Jai Alai were good in their own restrained way. I heard back in the day that JA was formed by members of local hardcore / metal type bands, believe it or not. They went on to basically become the de facto opening band for any "post-rock" type bands that came through N.O. for the next half decade or so. I always used to joke that Thrill Jockey would sign them any minute (due to JA's unabashed attempts to emulate The Sea & Cake), but it never happened. And now Thrill Jockey is basically a heavy rock label... Go figure.
