Boomkat Product Review:
Hudson Mohawke and Lunice’s TNGHT duo double down on their hugely hyped 2012 debut with a much leaner, freakier sound in ‘II’
Counting seven cuts and a skit, ‘II’ is much more stripped down and playful than its predecessor, and sounds more like they were trying to do themselves, than gunning for some viral success a la Baauer (‘member that, lol).
Highlights are many. The polyrhythmic percussive voodoo and possessed hollers of ‘Serpent’ are right up there, as is the farmhand rave madness of ‘Club Finger’, while ‘I’m In A Hole’ hits the nastiest with its devilishly edited trap drums and brooding drop-outs, and ‘Gimme Summn’ wickedly sounds like a lost Mr. Oizo joint.
