Over the new years period, many acts are converging on Australia for Falls Festival. SBTRKT is one of the electro acts on the bill and he will be playing tunes on his second album entitled Wonder Where We Land. The journey of the full album and story has somewhat been lost over the years as bands are looking to release just singles and EPs. But with this album, that philosophy and journey of the new album is back. With little short tunes spread throughout the album, it is an easy listen coming in at just under 44 minutes.
The best song on the album I think, after listening to it for a week or so, is the tune featuring Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend. ‘New Dorp, New York’, which has a smooth electro beat under it. If your headed along to Falls or his sideshow, you’re lucky. This album is all class and one of my favourites of the year. Christmas stocking filler indeed!
