Album review: 'ANX' by Dark Time Sunshine

Dark Time Sunshine "ANX" (Fake Four / Circle Into Square)

Dark Time Sunshine is a relatively new name in Seattle rap — the duo has been around for only a few years — but emcee Onry Ozzborn and producer Zavala are underground veterans. That might be why their latest album "ANX" is so fully-formed and assured, mixing dreamy pop and hip-hop like it's no big deal. Highlights are "Prairie Dog Day" and "Cultclass," which sound like a sunset and a rainbow of oil on concrete, respectively. The words in those songs are offbeat but on-rhythm, arranged in quotable hits — on "Prairie Dog Day": "no longer have to act black / even if you are black" — and cascading, yet chilled-out rushes. If there is there another rapper who can make an easy flow out of the "Cultclass" chorus, "Jesus Christ Superstar, amen / Holy Mountain and aliens, we are them / Men women and children," let him/her speak now. Anyone? No? OK that's what I thought.
