Amoeba Review

06/29/2015

Led by Syd the Kid and Matt Martians, Futuristic R&B group The Internet has been one of the most consistently captivating artists to emerge from the L.A.-based Odd Future collective. Fusing the lush soul sounds of a live band with electro beats, queer bent and psychedelic swirl, The Internet’s sound is a warm and inviting blend. Janelle Monae shows up to lend her breathy vocals to “Gabby,” which shifts from slow and funky to an OutKast-inspired breakdown in its final stretch, while Vic Mensa rhymes over the intro to the shuffling “Go With It.” But this is Syd’s show, and her vocals and lyrics are more assured than ever. Whether blowing off a money-grubbing girl (“Get Away”) or playing the part of the confident player (“Special Affair”), her ability to meld hip hop tropes to her wills is a delight to hear, while she’s just as adept at throwing social commentary into tracks like “Penthouse Cloud,” searching the skies for answers when violence against blacks continues to dominate the news. Compared with their bleaker Odd Future cohorts like Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, The Internet are a heady, mellow alternative who continue to take sympathetic elements and craft an innovative sound.
