The musicians’ carefully arranged textures are melded with a hodgepodge of up-tempo rock-funk and dub grooves, featuring female soul-pop-rap vocalists and more. They also delve into spacey hip-hop motifs. To that end, the ensemble apparently strives to take pop to a higher level. At times sensual, persuasive, and irrefutably hi-tech, the artists do indeed capture a mood. And what that mood indicates is simply up to the listener’s discrimination. They also fuse jazzy horn charts, thumping bass patterns and multihued EFX swashes throughout the predominance of this rather enjoyable production.
