Fthmlss’ album “Aloe” need only be described with just one word: “luscious”. Every element of “Aloe” sounds as if it’s been handpicked for full-bodied, natural sound quality. Acoustic drum kits and organic textures embellish velvety keys, silky bass lines and cascading guitars and although it could be perhaps describable as “light-hearted”, there is richness and depth to “Aloe”, that is prevalent throughout the entirety release.
Choppy, organic and tactile, “Aloe” is just as heart-pounding and catchy as it is sensual and expressive. Fthmlss chops samples effortlessly, giving the album that instrumental hip-hop finish, whilst it’s accompanying elements elicit qualities of jazz and funk. It’s befitting that “Aloe”’s track titles often reference delectable foodstuffs; from start to finish, “Aloe” is nothing short of a treat for the ears.
