"'Shy Dancers On Bungalowdorf Beach' begins with a funereal horn, and the pace of what follows resembles a procession more than the stampede typical of a Blawan record. To be clear, it still bangs. Roberts' reserve is relative, as 'Check Up From The Neck Up' demonstrates. Built from rusted percussion and an undulating drone, 'Check Up From The Neck Up' has a skipping gait that recalls Roberts' early explorations of UK dance music. But Shy Dancers On Bungalowdorf Beach isn't a comprehensive synthesis of old and new. It casts a narrow focus on texture -- the dirtier, the better. On the title track and 'Check Up From The Neck Up,' that can be a little drab. 'But We Need This Bench,' however, bonds earthy tones to sparkling chimes, coiled around the track like Christmas lights, and sweeping synth pads. It's a glimpse of a producer lightening up, not slowing down. As Bored Young Adults, Roberts takes an opportunity to explore another side of himself." --Resident Advisor.
