The first track It’s All Good is a fairly reasonable summary of Superorganism’s album; quirky, with rhythm to the fore, catchy hooks punctuated with (literally) all the bells and whistles. This upbeat sample-fest, with shades of Japanese electronica exponents HIFANA, effortlessly combines sweet vocals with straight up weird beeps and godknowswhat. 

For a debut, this is a remarkably mature album, meticulously put together and minutely intricate in its construction. If caught on an off-day, the persistent randomness and stop-starting could be infuriating, but similar criticism could be levelled at many great albums. If you enjoyed debut single Something For Your M.I.N.D. then expect more in that vein. Like early Avalanches on crack, this little dazzler will have you reaching for the body glitter and neon shellsuit in no time.
