Ja Humby takes us on an elevating experience - a trip on a mysterious hotel lift, where London jazz-funk combo Franc Moody are the lift attendants-cum-house band, performing tracks from their debut album, as the lift ascends ever higher...

This is a thoroughly entertaining addition to Molten Jets, Humby's supercool series of live performances that are sprinkled with surreal touches - previous episodes include King Krule's Live On The Moon.

Humby establishes a mood of alluring strangeness from the start, with a small cast of fascinating, increasingly strange characters joining the lift, as it ascends to the stars, becoming the band's avid audience.

As with other Molten Jets episodes, this shows it's possible to have a lot of creative fun with the live performance format, while Franc Moody demonstrate they are a banging live proposition. If you've missed live music - and who hasn't? - this is half an hour that's very well spent.
