San Francisco’s Hanni El Khatib returns with his fifth album after taking a break from making music to explore other creative flows. Working with Leon Michels (Lana Del Rey, Travis Scott) he has created an organic series of quite short songs ranging from just over a minute to three and a half minutes using samples that they have created for this project. 

The resultant output has a psychedelic punk feel. Lyrically, it has plenty of soul soaking through on tracks like Alive, whereas Colours and Stressy are angular, angry and reminiscent of the bricolage of early Prodigy tracks. Each song is long enough and sufficiently distinctive to grab your attention but then stops before it outstayed its welcome. 

A vibrant miscellany with attitude.
