Wonderful, subtle, weird record.
'Fear Is Real' (mostly based around a sample from Eberhard Schoener's mid-80s synthwave classic "Why Don't You Answer?") sounds like an early 90s deep trance number (They Came In Peace ie) crossed with some slightly menacing dark disco-wave. Hard to describe but utterly beautiful.
'Hips For Scotland' is simply a great melancolic modern folk song.
Altogether, a record haloed with magic and mystery.
