rating: can you believe it.... i am writing a "review" about some band that could be labelled as "r'n'b".... being called a "music-nazi" i never had a thing for any stuff that was rnb'ish... and i honestly have no idea why. nonetheless, it has changed within the past months. probably it's because there's been some releases that combine rnb with other styles such as chillwave, 80s synthpop and/or post-whatever.... best example to me is toro y moi's outstanding "anything in return". inc.'s debut album "no world" is, like "anything in return", an album that has a very strong r'n'b influence. andrew and daniel know how to make it sound interesting and they set themselves and their sounds apart from all the (at parts really really crappy) modern r'n'b stuff. by adding soulful and sometimes dark moments plus... this album has a, what i call "jellybean- vibe" which means it's colourful, sweet, i wanna have more and everywhere. my personal highlight on the album is "angel". this song unites the smoothness of the beats with intelligent placed electronic effects, hi-hats and wonderfully lush vocals. this song alone made me falling in love with inc., but it's only one highlight of an outstanding debut. i am really looking forward to seeing inc. live one day... hopefully anytime in summer.
