Wildly eclectic with dark lyrics reflecting these uneasy times, the latest from this musical chameleon is somewhat similar to last yearâ€™s fine Guero album, but with an even stronger hip hop bent and more sonic experimentation. Produced by longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich (who also produced Beckâ€™s Sea Change and Mutations albums), the album is loaded with playfully inventive soundscapes blending elements of hip hop, electronic music, psychedelia, folk, prog-rock and lots more.” - Don Yates
