Chicago visual artist Mariano Chavez and London based producer Jesse Hacket, aka Teeth Agency, have delivered a freethinking fever dream of lizard lounge, Afro-bendiness interspersed with laconic paganist tribal beats and elephant samples.

It’s a real mixed bag of influences and lo-fi electronic fuzz and warble; Lynchian horror on Harpoon Land, 80’s synth Krautrock with One For Tusk, 60’s psych stoner in Fazer Folk and just plain out-there with Do You Like Bunnies. Peanut Butter Wolf has curated this debut album on the fiercely independent Stones Throw label, and perfectly epitomises the label’s ethic in experimental output. While not suffering too much from such a diverse range of styles, the album certainly works as a whole – be a bunny, use that third eye.
