Despite having a completely different sound, there are still some quirks of vampire weekend present. The songs are groovy and the instrumentals are very fun. Quite a bop.

Favourite Tracks : Needs, Matter, Endless Rhythm, Scarlett
Great first electronic output from an artist we're used to see on the bass. A truly great album, although it slacks off a bit in the mid session. It flows smoothly and the last two tracks are divine
Chris Baio closed the door to the vampires in order to spent some time with his laptop, stepping out with this collection of smart, not effective, just smart, homemade rhythms, on continuous mix that probably pleases him (him and only him).
Baio fails to capture attention on this record. A truly missed opportunity that justifiably flew under the radar.
