Amoeba Review

09/14/2016

In the world of music, there's strange and then there's Die Antwoord strange. Their mix of insane electronics, wild raps, and even grotesque imagery makes them stick out in the over produced pop world. Mount Ninji & Da Nice Time Kid, their long anticipated follow up to Donker Mag, comes out in the midst of "say it ain't so" rumors of the group splitting apart. But if this ends up being their last album in a while, they're ending on a high note. The theatrics of wild raves and '90s techno are captured perfectly in a mix of "WTF??" and "Oh shit!" Mount Ninji doesn't give you a second to relax as the pulsating rhythms go into an almost endless drone that does a roundhouse kick on your head and body. "Banana Brain" is the amalgamation of face-melding weirdness and the European electronic scene of 20 years ago. It's like a Missy Elliott track produced by Aphex Twin: pure bonkers. "Fat Faded Fuck Face" (best song title this year?) sounds like a parody of modern Atlanta hip hop. By the fifth time Ninja says "I'm so faded" it feels more like a joke than a sincere statement while the minimal beats are chilly and spooky. "We Have Candy" is a demented track that would be right at home in a Tim Burton film from the '80s. The dramatic orchestrated samples mixed with a children's chorus feels totally indebted to his twisted world view. It's also the track that shows off the whispy, childlike insanity of Yolandi Visser's vocals that stab you like a knife in the belly. It's hypnotic, insane, and fun. Can you say that about any other album this year?
