A bold, challenging album about the social and generational forces that have shaped Dev Hynes’ sense of blackness
Album Review: DELS - 'GOB'
Seamlessly weaving his flawless MC linguistics with electro-pop and sought after collaborations
Elsewhere, Micachu brings all her talent for earache soundz to bear on ‘Violina/Bread Before Bed’, while ‘Shapeshift’, the collaboration with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, might just be the best electro-hop banger since Roots Manuva’s ‘Witness (1 Hope)’. Which is weird, ’cos the UK rap don also turns up for a spot of Cameron-bashing on ‘Capsize’. Tasty.
