Album Review: Samiyam - 'Sam Baker's Album'
Psychedelic minimalism and low-riding funk
Jagged, low-riding funk reminiscent of Hudson Mohawke (‘Bedtime’) meets samples of cats (‘Kitties’) while eight-bit flourishes trigger flushes of Hyperdub-styled weirdness throughout. It’s the unflashy moments that really linger, though, with ‘Taco Delay’’s measured minimalism providing some grounding to an otherwise heady trip.
