Amoeba Review

Billy Gil, Hollywood 11/05/2014

Arca puts the same dizzying power into his debut album as he has as a producer for FKA Twigs and Kanye West. Tracks like “Now You Know” feel four-dimensional, like they’re coming at you and falling away at the same time. Minus a presence as powerful as the aforementioned artists, Arca’s pure skills as a manipulator of sound come to the fore, and tracks like “Xen” are cinematic, digital beasts of sound that heave and crawl and build into stunning climaxes. Arca is not a gentle listen, but it’s one you want to continually revisit and dissect. A brilliant debut that proves Arca is more than a producer; he’s an artist in his own right. Can’t wait to hear his work on the next Bjork album,
