Album: The Hellocentrics, 13 Degrees of Reality (Now-Again)

This UK ensemble have followed up a collaboration with Mulatu Astatke with their most compellingly immersive work to date.

Loose polyrhythmic grooves function as grounding armatures for a heated discussion between distorted guitars, glitchy electronica, bursts of scrambled dialogue and other scary textures. As much rock as jazz, everything teeters on the edge of crashing, clanking chaos, yet order somehow prevails. Bracing stuff.
