Surge is the future, and Fax Gang are here to show you.

I fell in love with this gang after hearing their "FxG 3000" EP last year, and have been excitedly awaiting where they would take their career and sound next. This group features an interesting blend of cloud rap, abstract Hip Hop, and most particularily the genre of hexd, or "surge" as I prefer to call it. This genre being mostly defined by futuristic sounding instrumentals with a focus on dub basslines, samples, ... read more

Low is one of the bands with the most interesting music careers I can think of. This might be my favourite sound of theirs. From slowcore emo to ambient and glitchy pop music.

Part of me hopes this album gets the TLOP treatment with a remixed version later down the line. Because if there is anything that this album has, it's potential.

The textures of the instrumentals as well as their scarceness of presence make it sound like a mix of an ice cream truck and a circus. Lyrically this feels more like an episode of "In the Night Garden" than a Drain Gang album, and to me, that is extremely welcome. Playful and pure to the very core.

About

I sorta write my reviews as open letters, but I can't really afford a therapist so get the hell out of me, will ya? Came from rym to here and intend to stay.

I "review" essentially every album I listen to in full.

I don't really rate albums I dislike, so if you're here to see what I "hate", I'm sorry to disappoint you that you won't see that too often. Unless...
