big news for those people who love grizzly bear, animal collective and panda bear. a stunning album that deserves your ears. recorded at home using analog synths, a cassette 4-track, and a trusty sm-57 mic, colouring the sound with warmth and creating textures you want to wrap yourself in. the album opens with the trance-inducing polyrhythms and gorgeous multi-layered vocals of 'only pieces.' what follows is an album oozing with sounds maternal and subconscious like floating in amniotic fluid, ripe, hiccup-y and desperate to emerge. many of the songs pulse with infectious afro-beat and kraut-rock influenced grooves, calling to mind classic albums like 'remain in the light' and 'graceland'. in contrast, the instrumental tracks conjure mystical introspective landscapes reminiscent of popol vuh's unforgettable ambience. despite the album's murky aquatic underpinnings it's hard to resist shakin what you got to ebullient blissed-out tracks like 'fangala' and 'tunnelvision.' the album closes with 'everything's big', a bleak commentary on weakness and fear birthed of opulence and gluttony.
