Kieran Hebden’s first album as Four Tet in almost five years is perhaps his best yet, sealing his reputation for blending jazz, electronica and classical influences into seamless, shimmering soundscapes with an ever-mutating style. Single ‘Love Cry’ is a lush dancefloor disco epic with nagging vocal samples that build on the motorik rhythms of his previous ‘Ringer’ EP. The almost gamela-like ‘This Unfolds’ is as hypnotic as his recent collaboration with Burial, while the gentle meandering guitar tones of the closing ‘She Just Likes To Fight’ live up to its intriguing title. Seriously, seriously groovy.
