Comment: Rob Bridgett`s music on this 8-track issue chimes extraordinarily without being superficial and thin at its centre and its extremes. For sure, this is an avant-garde issue providing different mental corners and alternative visions due to creating idiosyncratic soundscapes. For example, Boneless Chicken is screwed and chopped rnb madness yet this madness is expertly channelized not prevailing over the course and not hurting the backbone of the track but instead amplifying strengths of the composition. Indonesian Donuts has been managed to continue the pathway, however, Rob doing it tongue-in-cheek with some hip-hop flavour. More deeply, Indonesian Donuts/yum-yum donuts/so fruity. What else more reasonable could you add to this advertise-alike statement? Later on, one could perceive twisted ambient progressions where hyper-realistic revelations are spiced up with strange word puzzles, uncanny samples and some blissful overdrives. At Black City Interlude ominous illbient swathes are tightly yet embracing enough air interwoven with a glitched-out undulation. Charcoal is a composition of mechanical folktronic guitar arrangements and baggy hip-hop cadences. Vogg is an ill-omened breakbeat strike with lots of changes in upstairs and downstairs therefore conveying enough dynamics throughout the track. It could be said sometime 8 years ago Rob Bridgett made up hugely as an artist to contribute with the recent one (RRR056) and Pacific (2008), and Arkhives (2008), and Londra (2008) to the legacy and image of Rack And Ruin Records.  In a nutshell, it is one of the most pre-eminent issues under the excellent lo-fi/DIY imprint.
