A blissful reunion of Acetone drummer Steve Hadley and guitarist Mark Lightcap, Bee Pieces’ “Dorothy’s On Island Time” sways like a leaf on the air, barely suspended. Pairing slow motion “Baba O’Riley” synth patterns over rolling drums, percolating electric piano, and Laraaji-esque glissandos, this selection from the recently released Volume 1 allows Lightcap to get generously far out, playing it woozy and open. Though more compact than the average Dick Slessig Combo joint, it’s no less locked into a state of meditative charm. | j woodbury
