WHAT’S THE STORY?: Buyers of this single will certainly be granted their money’s worth, thanks to the disc’s seven tracks that showcase quirky hip-hop musicianship and admirable creativity.

The radio edit of ‘Slow Slow’ is a consummate offering that will surely beguile followers of England’s hip-hop scene. Secondly, ‘Can’t Be Saved’ is littered with overwrought lyrical tones, which are complemented expertly by catchy guitar work and progressive drums.

Unfortunately, most of the remixes of Slow Slow do not effectively recapture the original track’s zest and urgency, besides the wonderfully ambient ‘Seahawks Slow Sunset Mix’.

SOUNDS LIKE: Roots Manuva or a more sophisticated version of The Streets.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: Creative lyricism is an element of hip-hop that you truly starve for.
