SUNDAY MUNICH: Vinculum: CD

Minimalist, gloomy-Gus trip-hop that comes off like a lo-fi version of Portishead, provided the latter had recorded for 4AD. While a little redundant in the beats department (which, by the way, all sound like they were recorded in the back of a tin warehouse with a bathtub covering the mic), it does have a certain charm, and the tracks, although not stunning, are engaging enough to keep your attention.
