Tom Fleming falters with his first solo effort. His vocals are so caustically high in the mix, and honestly they're just not as suited to this style of music as they are to the lusher, traditional arrangements of pre-Boy King Wild Beasts.

(experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)
