Vancouver-based rapper Evil Ebenezer's latest EP closely examines the personality of one of Batman's longtime foes: the Penguin. Produced and mixed by Edmonton DJ Nato, Evil's slick storytelling is nicely accompanied by Nato's fine beats and arrangements. At times, the music creates great suspense worthy of an action sequence in a Batman flick; "Half Bird Half Man" comes to mind as well as another standout song, "Grand Order of Occidental Nighthawks (G.O.O.N.)," which sees Evil being joined by Touch, Young Sin, and Snak the Ripper. The star of the EP also makes cameos; the Penguin's calculating yet confident voice opens every track, giving listeners more insight into the "gentleman of crime."
