After half a decade, British duo Darkstar present their fourth album "Civic Jams", their most focused, warm and intense work to date, a kind of comfort zone in a claustrophobic era of political and cultural unrest.

"Civis Jams" is a seething work of slumbering structures and quiet, powerful songs. The vocals cling to the edges of the mixes, giving them an intimate yet cryptic sound. This feeling is further enhanced by Darkstar's nocturnal production style of drums and synths. Highlights include the tracks "Wolf" in the best Mount Kimbie manner of the "Cold Spring Fault Less Youth" phase, as well as "Jam", a potential peak-time banger, but which Darkstar interpret gently and with the sharpness of a Jai Paul.

Following their Hyperdub debut "North" (2010) and the two Warp follow-ups "News From Nowhere" (2013) and "Foam Island" (2015), Darkstar have created an album of grandiose underwater night songs with "Civic Jams".
