Another set of main-stage big tunes from Australian producer Flume. Skin is an example of the consummate modern electronic pop album, pulling in bits and pieces of different dance musics to make a banging whole. The range of vocal guests is very impressive, including Little Dragon, Little Dragon, Tove Lo and even Beck. CD / double LP on Transgressive.

The tricky thing about an album like this, where there are more varied styles than your entire playlist, is the order in which the songs play and how they flow from one to another. You won't notice that you're going from electronic, to electro-rap, to Little Dragon-esque songs because of how well Flume makes them so naturally turn together. This reminds me of an upbeat version of ODESZA's In Return album, with slightly less female vocalists, and more scattered hip hop artists like Raekwon and Vince Staples, and alternative artists like Beck and Little Dragon.
