Six years have passed since we last heard from London's post-everything poster children, Fridge. But Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Adem's Adem Ilhan, and Sam Jeffers are better off for the wait on their fifth full-length, Sun. Picking up where the trio left off with 2001's stubbornly abstract and innocently visionary Happiness, but with the added confidence of some hard-earned solo success, Sun is a far more concentrated blend of electronics and acoustics, post-rock, and avant-laptop theatrics. Even so, it manages to genre-hop with the best of them: slinking from the shiny jungle funk of the title track, to the Beefheart-y "Eyelids," the asteroid-saddling "Comets," and the towering stack of Mogwai on "Lost Time."
