Kalabrese Rumpelzirkus

Sascha Winkler was due for a full-length outing, and the wait has definitely been worth it. His snazzy, loosely shuffled production casually arranges found-sound fragments and bitmapped bloopery behind an eclectic balance of organic instrumentation, inspiring subconscious booty wiggling that could turn lounge floors into dancefloors. Meanwhile, cuts like "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Body Tight" shift into sultry downtempo mode, ultimately shedding the notion of tempo altogether with the exotic interlude of "Hou Anthem." Winkler's opiate-like vocals can be an acquired taste for some, but the album's rich, tasteful character will undoubtedly help wash them down.
