about

With their third studio album, Coalesce, Compassion Gorilla offers up a unique interpretation of diverse and worldly musical styles, weaving together earthy and folkloric sounds with sophisticated and punchy modern sensibility.

Coalesce features 8 tracks of musical ingenuity. From the wizardry of the opening track’s cello feature, to the tight horn riffs of “Milk Thistle”, the psychedelic cumbia groove of “Music for the People”, and the 5/4-time Balkan-jazz stylings of “Son del Mar”, the album presents a steady stream of fresh ideas while maintaining an overall cohesive feel. Latin rhythms anchor the album in a steady, infectious groove, forming a bed for punchy brass harmonies, socially conscious lyrics, and rolling dub-delay effects. The warm, rootsy production style is reminiscent of an older age of recording, giving it a simple and concise sound.
