Between the Dots

by The Clonious

This is a difficult album to describe, as it crosses a number of genres, while remaining remarkably consistent. On the back of the album, it's described as "new and classic, soulful and striking, organic and electronic." That works as well as anything, I suppose.

I picked up this album because I'd heard it fits with the general aesthetic of artists like Flying Lotus. It doesn't feel anywhere near as experimental as that, but it is in the same general neighbourhood.

This album touches on jazz, electronica, hip-hop, and funk, and features appearances by Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Muhsinah. It's definitely nice.
