this surreal cosmic journey encompasses a vast range of sonic territory, ranging from woozy ethereal hip hop to outright quoting kraftwerk, & is utterly compelling throughout.

they recorded this entire album over the course of two weeks with Blood in Seattle. New gear & new equipment disintegrated comfort zones into dust & a new path appeared in the rubble. this record flirts with a pop sensibility, but through the prism of Shabazz Palaces’s fire & fury. For the Palaceer, that sense is all about how the groove is moving, & the supernatural telepathy that occurs amongst his cohort. Appearing here, in body or in spirit, are Julian Casablancas, Thundercat, Darrius Willrich, Gamble & Huff, Loud Eyes Lou, Thaddillac, Ahmir, Jon Kirby, Sunny Levine, & Blood. “a thrilling excursion, possessing an otherworldly ambience & substance you’ll spend months decoding” 4/5 – mojo.
