Coming from snowy lands of Scandinavia come Mixtapes and Cellmates, think The Concretes but with the beats of Four Tet.
This is quite a spaced out record with plenty of reverb and delay but that is the problem with this album is although these effects has been used effectively and the album moves along nicely it just never seems to go particularly high or low and when it finishes you left a feeling of not being entirely full. It’s a bit like eating gourmet food its good while you’re eating it but after your still feel hungry.
This is good enough first attempt for the band and I’ll be interested to see what they do next but right now I’m still hungry and need something else fill me up until then.
