Part II the New DecemberUnderstanding the ever strange and mysterious Fol Chen is a lot like solving a Rubix Cube without first studying the algorithms. Either you’re a genius, or you’re full of it, and just pulled the stickers off.

Part II: The New December starts off strong with “The Holograms”, showcasing the glitchy electro-instrumentation and dissonant, polyphonic percussion that will soon emerge as hallmarks of the album.
