Washington Hebrew, the solo project of The Caribbean’s Michael Kentoff, takes the wonderfully skewed and melodic pop of The Caribbean and invests it with a magic all its own. New single ‘Ima Try’ is the rabbit hole down which the listener first tumbles into Washington Hebrew’s self-titled debut, its skittering rhythms and modulated synth tones warping the song’s sense of time and space. This is how a collaboration between Flying Lotus and Magnetic Fields might sound.
“They are bound to confound your expectations several times on any given album, and if you’re into that, they’re good enough at putting these weird songs together that they can pull you in with surprising ease.” – Pitchfork on The Caribbean
