    TNGHT EP reaches stratospheric heights, devastating lows and throws a few body blows in between. Harsh, dissonant eletronics; hidden, modulated basslines and drums as hard-hitting as Ali create a whirlwind of fantasy that shows Lunice and HudMo really can strut their stuff when asked to.

    The real average of this is a 77.5, so how come it says 85? MetaCritic does this a LOT. You guys should really fix that. This is a cool EP but I do think I'll be more interested by a full LP.

    TNGHT is a thoroughly bombastic and thrilling album, merging influences of the two producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice to produce a thoroughly unique sound. Adapting Lex Luger's trap-rap stylings to the wonky/dubstep format may seem like a suicide mission to some, but the task is put into able hands.

Adapting Lex Luger's trap-rap stylings to the wonky/dubstep format may seem like a suicide mission to some, but the task is put into able hands. Hudson Mohawke's sonic escapism and bombast, combined with Lunice's innate penchant for hard-hitting beats and swaggering horn lines, makes for a kind of weird mixture that I initially found hard to swallow. But these bangers grow on you, from the obnoxious techno synths in the tumultuous "Goooo", to the repetitious yet infectious vocal line of the surreal "Higher Ground", to the thoroughly warbled vocal riff-line, shots, and **** of the high-flown "Easy Easy". However, Hudson tends to sacrifice his sonic adventurism for the swag know-how of Lunice's beats, preferring to take back-seat to Lunice's style in most songs. But the duo still maintains the heat right through this consistent album, which is deserving of its monstrous hype. Expand

    Even if TNGHT doesn't feel like a particularly rap-able EP... it's a totally rambunctious 16 minutes. The sort that reminds you of the good old days when HudMo and Joker, among others, were dropping EPs every few months that felt like they just might change everything.
  2. TNGHT may clock in at under 16 minutes, but it's the most satisfying quarter-hour blast you'll hear this year.

    The duo's debut, self-titled EP may only span five tracks, but after repetitive listens, replacing your amps, and multiple refreshment breaks, be prepared for it to take up an afternoon.
