What makes Fila stand out is their knowledge of all kinds of music styles and their ability to weave it all into a cohesive whole.
Starting with the confident kick of "The Bugs Will Bite", the album offers example after example of intriguing musical craftsmanship. There's the unassailable mellow funk feel of "Airlock Homes", the ambient expedition that is Spore, some animated optimism on the cheeky "Swann Todd" and straight-up quirk on tracks like "Ridden Pony" and the slamming "Pigsblood and Chalk". Once again, Fila rise to the challenge of making new and original music with a recording packed with so many ideas and influences that it manages to stay fresh and lively from start to finish.
