"This album has twists and turns but is not one that cannot be understood. This album was well worth the wait. Shall we dispense with the Folktronica tag at this stage then? Why not. When a record has so many signifying strands, it would be trite to dismiss it as simply that. As James puts it himself, 'I was trying to take a hip hop aesthetic and expand the range of references to stuff like 20th century classical, jazz, 2 step, early electronic music -- all the stuff that I get inspired by. I wanted to move on from the sound of my 2 EP's and I think I'm progressing'. A humble heart or simple understatement? We think the recordings are a validation of him chasing hell and high water for that new found aesthetic. Essentially, he is finding his voice, in the only way he knows how; through a distillation of many many music forms. The warmth of To Rococo Rot, coupled with the hip hop backbone of Boom Bip and the ambition of Jim O' Rourke. A morphing electronic player with the underpinning of rock."
