While best known as the bass player for irreverent and groundbreaking Canadian Tune-Yards, Nate Brenner aka Naytronix looks to bring his distinctive finger-plucking skills to his latest solo album. Following on from his 2012 debut 'Dirty Glow', this new material seems less about him as a solo performer and more about creating a whole spectrum of sounds, which in turn has lead to a far more psychedelic and exploratory style altogether.
The focus of the record still sticks on Brenner and his incredible calming singing voice, while the production likes to branch itself out in irregular ways throughout. Sometimes bringing in unusual percussion or the odd brass sample, each track aims to be as versatile and diverse as the last, making 'Mister Divine' a truly eclectic listen and enjoyable release.
It is clear that Brenner is trying not to get too sucked in to his Tune-Yards legacy as this album is all about him and his own vision. One that shows great dexterity in his talents and proficient in his ability to make truly engaging music.
