Not heard much really good on Anticon for a long while but this really eats the proverbial biscuit. A hip hop troupe straight out of the mean streets of Edinburgh these lads bring an energy and invention otherwise unseen in (let’s call it) avant-hop for quite some time. But don’t fret this ain’t no DoseOne obscure-fest  - this is catchy, tuneful, vibrant music with thumping beats, storming samples and incredible vocal dexterity. Check opener ‘Deadline’ with its early TV on The Radio fuzz bass tone and stellar vocals putting lines in your head you ain’t never gonna forget.

‘Sister’ has rambunctious African influenced voices with flowing rhyme and energy in spades. ‘Rumbling’ with low end bass drones, eerie eastern influenced samples and layered vox sometimes it’s like like a De La Soul who only listened to Animal Collective. Just when you have it figured the gorgeous lolloping ‘Romance’ knocks the other tracks out of the water, ‘70s dancehall samples, clattering steel drums and keening reggae vocals. ‘Remains’ is a freakin’ pop hit whichever way you look at it a chart aiming slab of a chorus married with scattershot verse, showcasing the talents of each MC whilst...yes you are about to read this right...Young Marble Giants play in the background.

My breath has well and truly been taken away by this superb record. It throws a wild slew of influences into the pot and comes out with something brand new. They seem to inject each track with an incredible vibrancy, a keen use of rhythm and above all hooks galore. It should be force fed to ailing youth and in an ideal world would be streaming from radios everywhere. Tremendous.
