Amoeba Review

06/28/2014

Two months after releasing Someday World, wry public intellectual and musical polymath Brian Eno is releasing another album in collaboration with Underworld's crooning braintrust and techno-minded guitar manipulator Karl Hyde. Birthed out of the same sessions that gave us Someday World, High Life is less pop and more pure polyrhythmic experimentalism. The record is a little more repetitive, a little more meditative, but equally high energy and equally afro-kraut injected. Decidedly weirder than the last record, I think this is the album I was hoping the last one would be. Funny that this one should be called High Life while the previous record owed much more to that specific Ghanaian genre of guitar pop. This record traverses electronic glitch skitter shuffle to filthy dense guitar processing expertly and occasionally melodically, returning now and then to the strange global pop of the group's previous collaboration. Recommended.
