Maybe I'm in one of my goofy moods where anything I can kind of explain or understand sounds good, as in "getting the point" and seeing the point "well made"... more or less. Either way, two seconds in and I wasn't expecting to like North's Mask EP, a melancholy collection of three vocal compositions. Nevertheless, it quickly grew on me; sometimes dubby and frequently beat oriented, its meticulous instrumentation and pace keep the melodrama from overstaying its welcome. We're a little too swamped today to delve seriously into his back catalog, but I'll be interested to hear where this chap goes next. In the meantime, Mask is free.
