Starting off as soaring electronica fanfare, Drank And Kites Tomorrow eventually swells into something approaching, but not quite breaking into, drum and bass territory. It’s a weird track, but the payoff isn’t quite as interesting as the track’s initial promise. The organic tones call to mind a different era, however, sounding at times like a chopped up Emerson Lake & Palmer (which is a...
