8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 October 2012

Played with these guys the other day - thought they we’re daft good players and stand-up dudes. I’m assuming (sorry - no press info) that this is the first single from the trio’s much anticipated sophomore release for Ninja Tune. They’ve taken an odd route with it too as the A Side is an extended Theo Parrish remix (no bad thing mind) with the B side featuring the The Invisible’s original (in extended form but still tucked away on the B side :(...) and a cover of ‘The Wall’ performed by Anna Calvi. Obviously these guys have got some serious friends...

Re-edit king Theo Parrish’s mix of ‘Generational’ is bizarre yet thoroughly entertaining, taking the concept of editing and re-sculpting tracks to a logical extreme. As I’m yet to hear the original (it’s on the B Side innit) it’s impossible to judge as a remix but as a stand alone pieces it’s truly a thing of wonky beauty merging elements of house, ambient, jazz and sound art into one harmonious whole.

Flip it and these elements seem much clearer. I remember this track clearly from the gig on Tuesday and I’m pleased to hear it in its long-form here. Dave Okumu’s voice soars over a deep yet blissful cut that echoes elements of Radiohead’s ‘Kid A/Amnesiac’-era guitar style before kicking into something a much grander and beat driven. Drummer Leo Taylor’s work on this track is particularly impressive and the overall sound is so out-there for what is essentially a pop record.

Finally Anna Calvi is up to bat with a cover of ‘The Wall’. Again, this is hard to judge in context as I’ve not heard the new album but if you’re a fan of Calvi’s you’ll no doubt be impressed by her sombre yet powerful take on the tune.
