Curse Ov Dialect Lost In the Real Sky
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Mush
Lost In The Real Sky puts Australia on the hip-hop map with a polyglot bang. Taking fellow Oz group the Avalanches' playful sampladelic spirit to much stranger places, Curse Ov Dialect's five core MCs/producers often cram more ideas into one track than many artists muster in their entire careers. Lost contains a dizzying range of musical styles, as well as multiple layers of ill subliminals; imagine the Bomb Squad's intricately crafted chaos informed by Nonesuch's Explorer Series and surrealism. The disc's panoply of conscious rappers with odd flows further spices this global melting pot.
