In a broad sense, you could call Monk & Canatella's debut, CARE IN THE COMMUNITY, trip-hop, but it merges strange, noisy indie-folk into the beats, and the results are, as the title suggests, "Darkus Twisted." The sonic palette (discordance, feedback, scratching) at times suggests Portishead (the retro intro and outro of "Out of "Here" and "Top Yourself" help reinforce the notion), but Jim Johnston's vocals take on a complete different timbre and mood. As for moods, there's plenty of moody soul on "Apology" and rolling darkness on "Roughead." And despite the threatening talk at the start of "Forthcoming," it also provides lamenting lyrics, as well as tenderness on "Chelsea Smile" and "Lucy Gray." But the track that everyone will remember them for is "I Can Water My Plants," with its chugging beat and slightly melancholy chorus. It's a keeper, so take care.
