Corey Christiansen plays electric and acoustic guitars in a collection of optimistic settings with a team of David Beove/b, Michael Spiro/perc and Colin Douglas/dr-perc. The extra rhythm pays dividends, whether on the acoustic guitared "My Sofiea" or electrical "Ambedo," the grooves are dug deep. Electric bass and guitar get fusiony on the Latin "Meraki" and the rock out on "Street Cred" with some hot riffs on "Awakening." Christiansen's acoustic picking is lovely during "With You" and floats over the percolating percussion during "I'll Just Wait." Upbeat beats.
