Mink is the second installment of International Observer's Zoonotic series, following on from Pangolin. Over five tracks, the Observer ponders on life, nature and isolation, accompanied by languid beats, jaunty melodies and dub basslines.
The new style in "Dr Vinklestein" works wonderfully. Is it swing? I also like the jazz/folk influences in "Carnival". "Mycelium" is a bit more classic magical Shpongle, although somewhat subtle. I love it as well. Shpongle can use its style in so many ways. I'd like more of this. Can't pick a favourite track. usling
