This is an excellent album. Emotion runs richly from every pour. Check the opening (almost) three minutes of excellence that is the very aptly titled, Soar. It’s rush of heavenly instrumentation is brilliant. Beyond that all the music feels exciting, forward-thinking. The compelling (or to put it another way: fucking awesome), Yom Thorke plays with intense synthesized insistence, then touching upon Disco while offsetting it for this century is Perth, or there’s the grainy Taste of Metal which talks up its own language fuelled via unforgiving, nasty stabs. The downtempo beauty of The Universe In Her Eyes completes the picture with all sorts of wild and varied compositions in-between. Playground is so obviously a feast of very wonderful possibilities.
