Arminda K I put this album on repeat A LOT. The songs are super inventive and creative, and the production is bang-on, too. Favorite track: Nosejob.

Alan Terrill Wei Zhongle have intrigued me since their first release, but this is their first album I've loved all the way through. The tunes are shorter and tighter and the singing has somehow become easier on the ear. If you can imagine a mixture of the first Battles album mixed with Gentle Giant, you're somewhere near. Amazingly good and very original. Favorite track: Mute.
