Rainbow Rhodes: This is another short instrumental interlude, but it really holds its own. I dig that "Lace Skull" bleeds seamlessly into this track - always nice to have 1 or 2 of those on an album. The title for this is so appropriate as well as the rhodes really does show a lot of color - I dig it. The groove is simple, but it holds it down - kinda sounds like something my brother would write, to be honest, and that is such a good thing. Bender gettin heavy on that bass, and I'm lovin it. Again, great harmonies from Nai, but that has come as no surprise. I wish there was more, but I actually dig that this one is just a little teaser. Super solid.
Sphynx Gate: Hiatus Kaiyote gets down on their instrumental interludes, and I dig it. This kind of sounds like a slight continuation of the previous tune, but still with it's own thing. I like that. It makes it cohesive, without sounding repetitive - it's like a "part 2" of sorts. Love the ease to this one - it's very laid back and relaxed, but still so funky. It really keeps your interest, and that's important. Dig the keys, big time. Again, solid.
Nakamarra: This is the most straightforward soul song on the album, and I like that they ended it that way. It's a nice, smooth, light song that helps you come to terms with the fact that all this funkiness has come to an end. Such a sad though, but so happy to hear it on such a solid note. Love the freeness Simon is giving the keys - gives the groove a nice open feel to it. I feel like I should be walking through a park or something. Love the hits on "honey don't cha" - nice emphasis. Simple harmonies in the chorus - dig em. What a nice ending to such a great album.
