Sorry for not writing about this one sooner, this was definitely one of March's stand-out albums. I wasn't a huge fan of Scuba's previous, 'A Mutual Antipathy,' so I wasn't expecting much but I was very, very mistaken. The experimental edge seems to have been taken off a bit in exchange for some actual song-structure and the result is a much more enjoyable album. Some garage and house influences can definitely be felt as well. If anything, I can see 'Triangulation' selling some people onto dubstep when they weren't convinced before, for better or for worse.

Bonus points to Scuba for heading up Hotflush and working (previously) with Vaccine, one of my absolute favorites! (Among many, many others...)
