The music (as well as the art) of Dean Blunt always raised questions. And Blunt always avoided to answer them. With his new 'band' (is it a band at all?), Blunt has made a 90s HipHop-infected album, that also harks back to the dubby and pop informed sounds of his last solo album. Arca has produced three tracks, (you heard 'Meditation' last year') that are highlighted because of it's different production style. Pirate-radio style, the whole album is 'hosted' by DJ Escrow, who appeared on various Blunt-mixtapes already, but might also be an Alter Ego of Blunt (pitched voice, slightly different accent). As always with Blunt, we can never be sure what is happening and who's talking. This of course also goes for the lyrics. And while Escrow gives shouts to the streets, Blunt's loops sometimes evolve from 90s Hip Hop into pure white noise and back. Fantastic. (cb)
