By now the routine is familiar: le sac cooks up electro beats that complement Pip’s often caustic, always conscious lyrical barrage.
Regrettably, ‘Repent Replenish Repeat’ is their most mixed work to date. Lead single ‘Stunner’ has a heft of bassy muscle, but the lyrics are surprisingly benign: “I’m not saying you’re perfect, but you’re really, really good.”
Elsewhere, the results are better. ‘Gold Teeth’ (video below), a collaboration with Flux Pavilion, is a lively, satirical attack on hip-hop vanity, whilst ‘Terminal’ masterfully fuses cinematic electronica with unsentimental spoken-word poetry.
