At once catchy and unfamiliar, these melodic, welcoming soundscapes depict strange, ever-shuffling rabbit holes for us to tumble down.

A heady air of dislocation envelops Drab City’s debut, where songs of innocence and experience merge with dub, hip-hop, dream-pop and jazzy soundtrack vibes to intoxicating effect. Dreamy and ethereal, a foundation of flute, vibraphone, and jazzy guitar chord melody can switch to drum machines or funk-inflected girl-group pop at a moment’s notice. Fans of warpaint, beach house and I break horses should give this a whirl. “To maintain as distinctive an aura as this album manages requires a diverse tapestry of musical ingredients and Drab City deliver in that regard, where funk bass and jittering synths in one moment can be supplanted by syncopated drums and vibraphone the next” 8/10 - Loud & Quiet.
