Displacer - Arroyo

Displacer - Arroyo

Displacer. Disssssplacer. Another strong release featuring the remarkable craftsmanship of fun and whimsy, with some extra-added funk. Yeah, bring that sweet noise displacer. Yeah. Nice groove. Keep on trucking in that direction. Find your bass; find your palace of groove. Add some low-end to your icy emotional atmosphere. Make those beats work for you. Arroyo displaces any fears of second album slump and eradicates notions of stagnation, proving that life can be tangible, and that change can work for us all, while adding gooey, gooey goodness to the sound established on Moon Phase. The kinetic groove of Arroyo proves to be highly evocative and emotionally powerful, while being morosely beautiful. All around, the sweet, sugary goo just adds to the moist, cream filled center. An underlying structure that elicits illicit listening desires. Donít stop here, keep it moving, keep the ball rolling.
