ENVIRONMENTS, the debu album from the collective H-Foundation, starts off with the title track, a jazzy spoken word track that introduces the players and the concept. But then "Sol Searchin'" gets to the meat and potatoes of the album: nice deep house, with some tech flourishes. "Tonight" is a vocal track that's immediately catchy, while "Scenario" is cool and smooth (with some well-placed cursing), like a filthy downtempo milkshake. The jazziness on display on the first track returns in "Broken Arrow," which melds a wailing trumpet with some mid-tempo breaks. The final track, "Slayin' the Dragon," is a dark guitar and feedback piece. H-Foundation is nothing if not versatile. This album proves it.
