Why do we like this?

Ready to get weird? Opiuo released his third full-length album Omniversal about two months ago, and I've finally given it my full attention. The 12-track endeavor swerves through glitchy beats and funky horns with some truly killer titles. Case and point: "Pumpernickel."

The intergalactic bass slinger has always had a strong proclivity for not only verbal, but also sonic idiosyncrasy, launching him into a genre of his own. Whether performing on his own with an arsenal of electronics or live with the Opiuo Band, the Melbourne beatsmith crafts music with vehement percussion, trance-like progressions and just a dash of hip-hop sample swag.

Actually, "Pumpernickel" is pretty classic Opiuo. If you listen to this one alongside "Loist Moinal" from 2010's Slurp and Giggle (titles, man), it follows a strikingly similar structure. The throbbing intro, the steady progression, even the fact that things pick up when the samples kick in around the 2:30 mark. 

He enlists the help of Hypnotech on this one, making "Pumpernickel" a deep and glitchy track to groove to. If you dig it, check out "Jelly" and the dance-floor destroyer "Flanjitsu," or download Omniversal here
