11 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After the dark emotion of Boys Outside and the politically inflamed Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time, Meet the Humans finds the former Beta Band man in a comparatively settled mood. The lyrics tend towards world-weary optimism and, musically, it’s his most fully formed record: elegant folk-pop enhanced by dub, hip-hop, house and a richness encouraged by his producer, Elbow’s Craig Potter. Laced with beauty, majesty, anger and euphoria, “Planet Sizes” may even be the best four minutes of Mason’s enthrallingly maverick career.

Great music

This album puts me into another world. Great rhythm, euphoric tones and chords - this is my new, ambient go-to music to clear my head.
