13 & God - Own your ghost (Alien Transistor)

Grower is the word for this.

13 & God - Own your ghost (Alien Transistor)

The Acher Brothers (The Notwist/Tied & Tickled Trio) are at it again (they're busy this month), this time part of a kind of supergroup with members of Oakland hip hop group Themselves. Many are the delights contained within; the sleepy tick-tock rhythm of Its own sun, the fantastic anti-anthem Armored scarves, the flute and shaker entree to the stalking hip hop main course of Janu are, the dreamy shoegaze of Old age, the compelling half beat with strings of Death minor. It's a real grower this album, pleasingly adventurous without being self-indulgent. Have a listen here.
