  1. Rowlands and Simons have a tighter grip on the material-an odd thing to say about an album with eight tracks built to sprawl, maybe, but Further really does flow from beginning to end, just the way its makers intended it to.

    At a meager eight tracks, the enigmatic duo makes an audacious statement to its peers: quality usurps quantity every time.

It's stock full of the Brothers' signature mix of playful psychedelia, dreamy hooks and thumping beats - while still retaining their experimental approach to EDM that defined their early works. The 11-minute rave-track 'Escape Velocity' is the only track that, at least for me, feels somewhat uninspired (that's an unpopular opinion though, so take that with a grain of salt!). It will be interesting to see what the future brings for this amazing duo; although I have to admit that judging from their two recent singles 'GO' and 'Sometimes I Feel So Deserted' from their upcoming album, I'm not too pumped for their new material. Oh well, maybe next time! Full Review »
