MUUIXX starts off in a warmly beautiful electro-acoustic trot, only to take a series of associative leaps and departures, playfully intermarrying organicism with industrial menace. Never not willing to take a left turn, the album makes a point of settling into the unsettling back alleys of pop-electronics. It's a harrowing head-nodder that sparks the ear with grinning textures atop slabs of gilded waste.
My favorite album of 2015 until I discovered it came out in October of last year. Regardless, I've been listening to this all year. It's sooo weird. I think of it as the Disintegration Loops of vaporwave, which tells you something about it's presence. Absolutely amazing.
