Mahjongg's is a creativity that’s unlikely to grace your stereo for eons, with a combination of purpose, musical know-how and the production smarts to seamlessly fuse 70's lo-fi guitar, polyrhythmic drum explosions and fuzzed-out bass lines. But it's not just an insightful collection of what's come before. They've got tones, bleeps and beats too. Just like the genreless melee Black Dice or Animal Collective craft so effortlessly, Mahjongg take that initiative and coincide it with some well sourced cohesion. In short: RaYDONcoNG 2005 is a contemporary masterpiece.
Mahjongg are not about hype, they're about music, and challenging your perceptions on music. They might be about to take over the world, but really - who cares what they're doing unless they're on a plane right now to play in your living room and change your life. Short of that, at least RaYDONcoNG 2005 exists, right?
