Planet High School

Planet High School by Mux Mool
Released: Feb 2012
Label: Ghostly International
When it came time to quit Minneapolis, Brian Lindgren picked Brooklyn over L.A. -- a telling choice in his second album as Mux Mool. Where his debut was obviously in thrall to the hazy, faded wash of Flying Lotus and the So-Cal beat scene, Planet High School sets off in search of a new identity. Stumbling MPC beats remain the core of his instrumental hip-hop, but the range of influences is wider, from Daft Punk to Steve Reich, and Lindgren has amplified his sound world exponentially, fleshing out the crunch and growl with limpid melodies and gleaming samples.
