EDITORS’ NOTES

On their third album, GoGo Penguin marry energetic acoustic jazz playing with intricate electronic-inspired compositions. With parallels to pianists Robert Glasper or Brad Mehldau’s sly takes on indie pop and soul, the British trio conjure glitchy club sounds (“Weird Cat”) and hypnotic fusions (“Unspeakable World”) using a traditional framework: Chris Illingworth’s cascading piano melodies pirouet around Nick Blacka’s double bass and Rob Turner’s drumming. They combine in flowing meditations (“All Res”) and frenetic drum ‘n’ bass-worthy beats (“Smarra”) alike—one techno soul living in a fiery, three-headed bop body.

This group won’t stop getting better

If you loved any of their previous albums you’ll definitely love this one. And if you’ve never head of them before you’ll still love them. They have a wonderfully inventive style and each song gets better the more you listen to it.

Unfortunately the extra content is kind of lame… why would I want a remix when GoGo Penguin is so refined, any remix of the music just doesn’t improve it. However, you can get the non-delux version without the remixes so it’s no big deal.

No fake handclap track

After two free listenings I bought the non-deluxe version.
Jazz continues to fascinate and innovate while hip hop continues to bore.
