Fogh Depot = Flying Lotus + Somnambulist Quintet
Fogh Depot is an excellent concept album that takes listeners on a journey through various soundscapes. I loved spending my Sunday relaxing at max capacity to this album. It effectively transported me right into the tunage. The opening track “Anticyclone” is a droning jam but one of the album’s stars—“Tattoo” is a plinky track with some killer percussion throughout. But my favorite song of the album is the heavily jazz-influenced “Dark Side of the Monk.” It’s a seriously sultry and downtempo track featuring some seriously sexed up saxophone spotlighting. The entire album covers a wide spectrum of sound, but summed up, it’s pretty much exactly what Satan’s nightclub would sound like in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. I can’t say enough good things about this album and I’ll take another round of this any day. –Kamryn Feigel
