Das Koolies (super furry animals)
It’s All About The Dolphins
Compassionate, head-nodding, deep-bass-driven, party-ready, plugged-in, hook-toting, electro-beach-pop from the artists formerly known as The Super Furry Animals.
With an album stuffed to the rafters with boom, squelch and fuzz “It’s All About The Dolphins” finds sorrow in humanity’s grip over nature, set to an electrified fit of instrumentation, the presence of mammal hand and brain still traceable via the compelling sense of melody still out of robots’ grasp. ““It’s All About The Dolphins” has sounds SFA have used over the years — acid house synths, vocoders, dub, sweeping production — but taken away from Gruff Rhys’ very distinct songwriting style, with Bunf and Ciarán singing lead, it truly sounds like a brand new band.” – Brooklyn Vegan
