"Tune Out, Turn Off, Disconnect," Helix’s follow-up to 2015’s critically acclaimed "Chronic Happiness" started out as a surprisingly upbeat album until he tore his ACL in a jiu-jitsu tournament. The injury and 8-month recovery resulted in a somewhat self-destructive head-space and left Helix feeling disconnected from friends, family, lovers, and even his own sense of self. This dark and heady vibe quickly crept into the material, along with the pull of a variety of artistic influences, including Mark Rothko’s abstract expressionism, Woody Allen’s pedantic humor, and the raw intensity of John Lennon’s early solo work.
