    The band’s shape-shifting compositions create a forward momentum well suited to a journey through different levels of Hell on Earth.

    ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH is an intensely beautiful, intensely difficult record.

    Their vision fits right into the lineage of trailblazers they’ve joined by aligning with Saddle Creek, and their first contribution for the label makes for a most worthy addition to its roster.

    The trio seems more determined and passionate in how they concoct their witches' brew of ideas, knowingly aware of how the plot unfolds while convincing us that anything kept a secret doesn't matter. As oblique as their music has become, it uniquely makes sense to them.

    On ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH, every fragmented idea is thoughtfully ripped apart and stitched back together with the gusto of a delirious genius. The band reframes reality and mixes the euphoric highs with the sinking lows in strangely surreal collages that are freakishly beautiful, leaving you feeling kinda stoned and a little bit sinful.

    SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE make willfully unorthodox music and seem to dare listeners to keep up with them and make sense of their art, but those who make the effort are rewarded by the band's unbridled creativity and warped yet radiant sense of optimism and excitement.

    A deeply sonic experience, wrapped, warped, and layered over hypnotic melodies and honeyed whisper vocals. I am not sure why it makes senseA deeply sonic experience, wrapped, warped, and layered over hypnotic melodies and honeyed whisper vocals. I am not sure why it makes sense all put together, but it does. Give it a listen. Then give it another dedicated listen and pay attention to the details, samples, varying instruments, effects and other things I'll have to listen again to hear. AOTY for me so far Expand

    Eu realmente gostei das letras, mas não consigo apreciar a sonoridade criada, a escolha de deixar os vocais bem super abafados pelo instrumental
