One Take

High Focus Records
"Fat like an elephant's knacker". On the quiet I reckon Ocean Wisdom's 'Chaos 93' might just be the most lyrically-engaging and dazzling album that stable have given us yet. The man has SKILLS, fast, furious, ferocious, funny-as-fuck skills so natural that HF are going to be pulling tracks off to highlight every damn chance they get. 'One Take', like the rest of the album, features fantastic production from Dirty Dike, here hitching a frabjous flute-guitar jazz whorl to a solid cruising beat and then having the good sense to keep things minimal (gorgeous strings the only addition), so you have space to concentrate on OW's trails of consciousness. Already a contender for debut LP of the year. Get hip.
