rating: raising from the beautiful baltimore, modern girls are perfect in combining good old 90s trip-hop beats with indie and psychedelic sounds, r'n'b and a good portion of up-to-date electronic music. at some parts "modern girls" sound like delphic should have sounded like if they wouldn't have taken the "we wanna make a crappy pop music album" exit. "animal totem" sounds like a mix of massive attack from the "blue lines" era and toro y moi.... such a great tune! i highly recommend this album. my favourite tracks are "made their run", "animal totem" and "all i know"
9.5/10 (n.e.)
