Ghostpoet, 'Some Say I So I Say Light'

Album Info

  • Release Date: May 6, 2013
  • Label: Play It Again Sam
8 / 10 That murky world of electronic clicks, ticks and cosmonaut synths that Thom Yorke has been dipping into for years, Ghostpoet lives in for real. The 30-year-old Londoner, real name Obaro Ejimiwe, got a Mercury nod for his 2011 debut, ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam’, rewiring the Streets’ breezy, early ’00s garage output for
a paranoid, post-7/7 London. His new album is a triumph of agitated beats, jazzy keyboards and slurred rap, impressing most on ‘Plastic Bag Brain’, which sounds like Roots Manuva holding Foals hostage in a grimy warehouse. Bloody great, basically.
