CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The 405

Father Creeper is an innovative and refreshing listen, that if given a try will appeal to so many different audiences from fans of hip-hop, electronica, house, dubstep and indie-pop.

musicOMH

It’s a blistering, at times thoughtful, scattergun grab-bag of magpie musical styles and broken beat rhymes that somehow hangs together with irrepressible energy and invention.

70
PopMatters

There are too many ebbs and flows, highs and lows, for this to be a great album, but one has to credit Spoek and Sub Pop for having the courage of their convictions

60
Drowned in Sound

Father Creeper is most certainly not a perfect record, the ride is a trek back in time to the fairground, riding the dodgems, and getting shunted, lumped and banged-up as sounds collide.

60
NME

‘Father Creeper’ sits along the Die Antwoord album as evidence of some gloriously unusual music coming out of South Africa. 

57
Pitchfork

It is a wearying listen, overcrowded and too loud and too harsh, and to engage actively with it is to feel your knuckles whiten with effort.
