it's taken forever for this to come out on a physical format, but it's well worth owning as it's an impressive debut that gets more funky & addictive with every listen.

the long-available singles like '212', 'Chasing Time' & 'Yung Rapunxel' showcase aggressive production that winds together dubstep's relentless bass pounding & Banks' talents as a fluid, sometimes vicious MC as well as a strong R&B vocalist. Production assistance from underground dance figures like Lone, AraabMuzik, & Lil Internet, gives the album an incredibly varied feel. Spanish-sung rhymes, Latin breakdown & funky horn sections come up against harsh minimalism, commercial rap routines, haunted trap beat, jazz & even surf beats (courtesy of the Ariel Pink-produced 'Nude Beach A Go-Go'). for fans of m.i.a., santigold, mark ronson or beyonce.
