OOFJ 
Acute Feast 
The Alarm
Street: 04.21
OOFJ = Grimes x Veyu + Portishead 
 
Hypnotically repetitive and endlessly dark, South African/Danish duo OOFJ make sure to keep things sexy and cinematic. Delicately placing Katherine Mills Rymer’s super-high-pitched baby voice over thick, pulsating beats results in something sickly sweet and oddly sexual. The use of minor chords and cinematically climactic instrumentation only adds to the knots already twisting in your stomach. Are they knots of anticipation or anxiety? Either way, this album will get your endorphins going. This is definitely something to make out to with someone you’re not supposed to. Sorry, Mom. –Allison Shephard
