Take a trip hop vocalist fron the 90s then get a bloke who makes a trumpet crossed with a synthesiser, then add some avant garde thirst from an American clued up audience. This has got Neill's stutter, sweeps and abrupt changes that create beautiful production. Those hang drum sounds get me every time.
