Eight years ago on PopMatters, Timothy Gabriele said of the Bug‘s highly-acclaimed LP, London Zoo, “London Zoo is the anti-hesitance, a bug planted in the black box of a sinking world, a communicable antibiotic for those blinded by the darkness.” As successful a feat as London Zoo is, however, the Bug‘s Kevin Martin clearly still had work to do.
Martin’s latest work under the Bug name is Angels & Devils—set for an August 26th release via Ninja Tune—his first LP since London Zoo Leading up to the album’s release, he has now dropped two cuts from the album, “Void” and “Function”.
