Been looking forward to this since I heard a couple of singles. I like what Sacred Bones are doing lately as a label, but this was underwhelming overall.


I think this is okay. If you are really into trip-hop or downtempo, give it a try.


The concept isn’t new, and it isn’t very complex per se, with the slow beats, the movie and opera samples, the “Burial vibes”, but if it is done as skilled as DJ Muggs did it here, I can only fall in love with this album. It is warm and witchy, gloomy and makes you dream all at the same time. Instrumental hiphop at its very best.
