Emil & Friends’ new EP, Downed Economy, is perhaps best exemplified by its opening track and title track. Although the most upbeat track on the EP, “Downed Economy” shares similarities with the other songs by featuring an abundance of electronic sound clips, trickling into the ear like watery drips. This is modern electronic funk, rolling deep into the soul with smooth grooves and falsettos, bolstered by 8-bit noises. Throughout the EP, soft, sexy textures are mashed up with hard, obviously non-organic ones, but somehow it’s enjoyable; the ridiculous amount of work that must have gone into arranging these songs makes for a remarkably distinct listen.
