With previous on Tuba, Surfase and Gourmet, it was only a matter of time before Cali collective Subtle Minds dented the discog of do-no-wrong imprint Subaltern. Marking the occasion with four tracks, it's every bit the consummate label debut. "Ambitions" soothes with a purple tint, all west coast and softly sleazy. "Gelato" brings even more sweetness with pining melodic poignancy and a lush sense of sadness, "Standard Strain" eases back on some dewy eyed harp plucks subtle barbed bass grunts on the fills while "Sun Valley" brings things to a close with touching humanised textures, and deliciously trippy percussion. Ambitious and accomplished.
