Wagon Christ - Toomorrow (2011)

Luke Vibert here serves up a selection of laid-back instrumental funk, woozy abstract hip hop, skewed house rhythms and plenty of vocal samples, often funny or just plain bizarre. Fans of contemporaries Aphex Twin or Squarepusher will appreciate the range of musical experimentation and humor across the record. Highlight "Oh, I’m Tired" starts with bass guitar funk and develops a more maudlin feel via a dreamy harmonica turn and sparkling orchestral accompaniment. Overall Toomorrow demonstrates Vibert’s continued relevance in today’s dance music, and is only slightly tinged at times by some extended jazzy twiddling.
