"Kieren Dickins aka DELS is a new type of rapper (which is another way of saying that he's more than just a rapper). Dickins recorded GOB with just three producers, all of whom he has collaborated with for a significant amount of time and all of whom are more interested in creating something with him than in giving him a beat to rhyme on. Micachu is perhaps best known for her 'indie' work with her band The Shapes but her interest in grime and hip hop is as well documented in a series of mixtapes and videos on YouTube. Together she and DELS create the bad-trip anthem 'Melting Patterns' and 'Violina,' which catches all the disorientation and anger of a relationship break-up. Longtime mentor and friend Joe Goddard of Hot Chip is represented by both 'Trumpalump' (featuring his own beautifully melancholy/hopeful chorus) and Shapeshift, plus a brand new track, 'Capsize,' which dissects something of the current political situation in the company of Roots Manuva (the only guest MC on the record) -- a kind of 'Ghost Town' for a new generation."
