At some point, every artist could use a change of scenery, which Omni confirms on his latest effort. After dropping the decent but ultimately forgettable album Ballyhoo, this L.A. MC temporarily relocated to Australia to record Batterie–a release that's noticeably more inspired than his last. Working mostly with Aussie producers like Bonez and Optamus, Omni sounds reenergized, rapping over everything from bottom-heavy bangers ("We Are All We Have") to melodic D&B ("Boost"). Omni's subject matter here may not be incredibly original, but even when he rhymes about preserving hip-hop ("My Culture"), this MC finally sounds like he's got a cause.
