the cosmic hip-hop duo transport us to another plane with George Clinton-esque disembodied vocal ruminations amongst deeply evocative, insidious, warped backing.

this record is much starker than its brother; colder. the enigmatic press notes released alongside these albums give insight into the mad narratives contained within: “There is new blood and space and room to be different and have different assets and different art and different ways to talk and also open up some space inside to do something new. There are scales and there is melody and there are Sunny days and there is Darkness, but that—it should be noted—to the Palaceer, it is not a lack of illumination or brightness.” “both comprise a narcotic, erotic whole, with butler spinning darkly poetic political theories, puncturing mainstream rap’s empty swagger” 4/5 – mojo.
