Malachai – Beyond Ugly (Domino)
Third part of the trilogy for our home grown hominoids sees Scott and Gee come full circle with their unique blend of beats, psych, funk and whatever else the crate digs up.
It’s not that difficult unearthing cool samples to loop but the ability to turn them into great songs without an instrument in the room is a work of genius.
This album and it’s sisters will stand testament to the ability to turn a huge array of influences into a coherent body of work.
Look beyond the bedlam and you will be rewarded with poignant reflections on the frailty of society and our propensity to destroy each other. War? What is it good for?
