Slugabed's 'Time Team' is a concise documentation of Greg Feldwick's computational experiments analysing the directionality of hexagonal crystals. Released on Ninja Tune on 7 May (15 May in N.America), Slugabed's music is suffused with a unique mix of humour, next level production, dancefloor smarts and melancholic emotion.
Asked to explain 'Time Team', Feldwick responds that "it's to do with deep feelings about mostly inexpressible things". It is indeed an album full of feeling, warmth and humour, a remarkable feat for a record composed mainly on synthesisers and drum machines.
Single 'SEX' precedes the album on 9 April and features remixes from Ninja labelmate Daedelus and Groundislava - get a free download of the Daedelus remix on the Ninja Tune site
