Four Tet - There Is Love In You (2010)

I normally would not post Four Tet in such a blog, but as of late, Mr. Hebden has been leaning more and more towards the dance/house style, and it finally sees its shining moment in this release. Four Tet shows not one sign of rust on the crazy house jam "Love Cry", a nine-minute sprawl of dequantized drum loops and airy vocals. Even in such a drastic change from the "folktronica" of his essential releases Rounds and Pause, there is still an element of his old sound evident in the album. His first full album in five years, and best release since then.
