With most songs clocking in at under three minutes, this release has a real sense of immediacy and urgency while still managing to weave a compelling larger story.
God Is in the TV
It’s a raw and aggressive, mostly self-produced album with a level of honesty that is commendable and a showcase of skill that sets the bar high.
Metal Hammer

The whole thing is barely more than 20 minutes long, and yet it’s packing more ideas than many bands manage in an entire career. And it’s fucking brilliant.

The Needle Drop

With its chilling mix of rap, goth, punk, and noise, God Has Nothing to Do With This has a huge impact for such a concise project.

I'm already incredibly biased when it comes to Backxwash so just take this with a grain of salt but....OHHHHH HELL YES.

Backxwash takes the "Witchhop" label and darker themes of her last album to create her most haunting and devious sounding album yet. From the cries of "oh god no!" In the instrumental to shouting how she fucks with black magic, it sounds like the soundtrack to a trans 70s pulp horror film. This is some of her best beats yet with electric guitars, dungeon ... read more
Thank you @Toasterqueen12 for putting me onto this.
WOW! Backxwash needs to blow up in the underground scene ASAP. Her powerful, versatile deliveries are really something to behold here. And that sampling is some of the best I’ve ever heard. “Black Sabbath” and “When the Levee Breaks”. She’s got class and she knows it.

Just under 25 minutes, God has nothing to do with this... is a wicked, powerful and unique experience and is certainly unlike anything else out right now. I love the samples on this thing, they stay true to the original and adding its own spin on it.

Do wish it was longer though, ... read more
The soundtrack of the Gasper Noe's first full black cast film.

Best and consistent production yet this year on a Hip Hop album. The crazy and eerie feeling throughout the compact 22-minute album is amazing.
OMG what a great album!!! (I know God has nothing to do with it but I needed to exclaim)

This is what you get when your ideas about what you want to do are totally clear but besides that you are full of passion and talent. Ashanti Mutinta knows perfectly what is going to tell you, but also knows how to put it in a package defiant enough to catch your attention. This record is fast (the longest track goes for 3:38 min, the briefest last 61 seconds and the whole album is finished in 22 minutes), ... read more
