  • Someone said Good Block make the kind of music you'd hear in Crash Bandicoot, and I haven't been able to un-hear it since. It's the highest of compliments. On "Aquaculture," a crisp '80s snare summons a vintage feel that doesn't let up. Organic percussion hammers away, yet the track never loses its delicate ambience. As things gains momentum, you're taken further and further below sea level—the otherworldly synth textures in the latter half bring to mind an underwater city. These kinds of sounds are cinematic enough to pull you out of your head and dip you into an entirely different space.
