MOHIT are a band that mix intricate arrangements, glassy guitar lines, and a wonderful way of shifting a song's focus without it sounding too tacked-on. 'Yoghurt' begins as a tight, guitar pop record reminiscent of Vampire Weekend's new LP, before shifting and morphing into something much more aggressive and expansive. I love the occasional blasts of synth bass you get that bookend each passage. 'Reggaeezer' is a much more ethereal affair, with the singing being restricted to vocalisations rather than words. It's clear that these songs have been forensically structured and arranged, and perhaps that's why although I basically enjoyed them I still found them a smidge soulless at times; it's a good effort nonetheless.
