EDITORS’ NOTES

Alt-rap bubbling over with ideas and jackhammer attitude? Experimental indie with a splash of forceful spoken word? However you categorise this genre-brewing first album from Edinburgh-based trio Graham Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi, and Kayus Bankole, its verve and energy is impossible to ignore. From the sinister atmospherics and strange couplets on “Mmmh Mmmh” to the twitchy, exultant clatter of “Get Up”, Dead sounds utterly distinctive and, paradoxically enough, thrillingly alive.
