An excellent member of Ninja Tune's illustrious roster, Liverpool's sinister psych-masters Loka return with this new LP, a follow up to 2006's Fire Shepherds. As the cinematic menace of opener "Entrance" gives way to the simple acapella humming of singer Sera Baines, you'll see straight away that this is an album in thrall to tripped-out jazz greats such as Freddie Hubbard, Roland Kirk and Sun Ra. Others such as "The Tower" hint at a baroque, pastoral influence, as oboes and fluttering flutes recall Rotary Connection and the arrangements of Charles Stepney. Over twelve tracks, Loka create deep, rich textures that will stay with you long after you've stopped listening.
