Sybarite Cut Out Shape
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Temporary Residence
Four years after his triumphant Nonument for 4AD, Xian Hawkins returns to Temporary Residence to take his home-field advantage. Worth every bit of the wait, Cut Out Shape sees an extensive diversification of Hawkins' array of rampantly unique sounds. Teaming up with Psapp, "Runaway" sees Sybarite showing up Stereolab while "Halfmoon Rockstruck" achieves more emotive heft in two minutes than most bands chase for an eternity. This is the Shape of things to come for Sybarite.
