8/10 Mike Staff review, 14 February 2014

I've not encountered Afterhours before but I'm immediately enjoying this mini-LP on the ever-reliable Not Not Fun. This guy conjures up a distinct style of trip-hop with the woozy nocturnal Los Angelisms of FlyLo amid a post-dubby spaciousness that brings to mind both Sun Araw and Forest Swords, but more computery.

There's quite a variety of textures over the course of this record. Opener 'Spit At The Mirror' begins with stop-start digital scree which then gives way to a piano sample replete with vinyl hiss (or is that rain against a window?) over a stuttering digital heartbeat that apes the intro's disjointed rhythms. At the other end of the spectrum tracks like 'Lovesick' and 'Night And Day' have a slick, clinical, fluorescent quality with simple, head-nodding beats and smoothly smeared melodies and subtle vocal sampling which hints towards Burial getting stoned on his own on a rooftop in the middle of the west coast's biggest city.

This is really chill, late night big city vibes with a distinct aesthetic character running throughout. Nice.
