Bola's second album, FYUTI, treads much of the same area as SOUP did, though with some distinct differences. First, the melancholy strain that ran through the first album is even more evident here, as on the opener "Vertiphon," which feels like midnight on a lonely planet. Second, there's more of a hip-hop influence, as the modulated vocals which almost take center stage of "Pae Paoe" show. These two influences oftentimes come together in fascinating ways, as on "Veronex Cypher," which is the sound of a funk machine's heartbreak. "Magnasushi" takes it one step further, with some harsher industrial edges to the sadness. (In comparison, the melody on "Soleiele" is relatively jolly.) But Bola has other tricks up his sleeve as well: "Shoob,e" has a shuddering warmth to it, while "O, Chuma" delves into its scuppering rhythm. "Horizophon" seems headed nowhere, at first, but then backs into its lovely melody quite deliberately, and the final track, "VM8," is beatless, a track that slips out into the black void of space. A mournful success for Bola.
