This is something else. It's probably mostly the fanboy in me that gives this the rating I did, but looking at JF's work from a general perspective, I get goosebumps just thinking about what he has in store with the new LP coming out in just a matter of months. He felt like making a 'progressive synth-pop' record, or whatever he calls it, and he pulled it off in the oddest of fashions. The man does whatever the hell he wants, and it's awesome! Think 'A Sphere in the Heart of Silence' with this EP, if we're making comparisons.
Upon hearing "synth-pop" and "electronica" thrown around about this EP, I was expecting a
throwback to To Record Only Water and I felt myself quietly accepting it. Then John
smacks me right the fuck in the face with an unexpectedly cathartic glitch/hip-hop expedition
that is as impressively cohesive as it is flavorfully tense
