8/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 November 2011
Now that I've opened up and admitted the thing that all readers of these reviews over the past few years will ave known for a long long time, namely I don't have a fucking clue what I'm talking  about, the pressure is off. Giving me this record is like giving it to Syd Little and asking him what he reckons. The track everyones going mental about on the internet appears to be 'Endless Winter' which actually appears on the flip of this record. If you play in order then you get a load jazzy excursions in avant funk/hip hop which sounds something like The Pop Group collaborating with Prefuse 73. 'Endless Winter' however, whilst still, pursuing the ideal lop sided groove, has a lovely tuneful glacial feel to it, helped by excellent lady (i think!) vocals that sound not unlike Laura Veirs.  I suppose you could relate it to Animal Collective if you were looking for a general ball park type comparison. It chaotic stuff and  really all over the place sylistically, on 'Tantrum' for example it melds crackly cut up beats with the sort of plaintive vocal heard on weepy reggae numbers. Its not an easy listen however, this guy, really does like his staccato beats but its one of those  records when it sounds so much its own thing and devoid of influence that it could just be the start of something new. On the other hand of course, I could just be waffling complete bollocks.
