Niagara has always been an intriguing proposition. The trio's music is often brilliant, but frequently thrillingly difficult to pigeonhole. They're at it again on "Apologia", a debut album that's as trippy and otherworldly as it is beautiful, inventive and intoxicating. Over the course of the set's nine tracks, you can expect to hear oddball samples, bright tropical melodies, "Blade Runner"-influenced synthesizer work, sticky Portuguese rhythms, ambient electronics, glitchy electronics, lo-fi drum machine hits, rainforest-ready songs, bustling hand percussion and horizontal aural humidity. In other words, it's a brilliant musical melting pot the likes of which you've never heard before.
