Comment: Hu Creix is an interesting artist at least it can be assumed while listening to this 10-notch outing. Unfortunately I have not had enough time to put spots on other releases by him. As the title says it is about sins as much or less as he used to sing and recite here and there. These are small things and habits on its own but important to him. Or giving a fuck to more murky themes like death and having no future. Indeed, most of the compositions presented over there are instrumental ones. It must be said it is an album of balance both emotionally and musically and even stylistically. From chugging electronic and indie tinged music to some gloomy ambient glimpses. For instance, the title track reminds me of Kraftwerk when the legends were to move forward from early motorik to tranquil electro and techno pop. Hydro Key continues with the same path while adding dub inflected electronic effects and spaced-out psychedelic music and cool jazz whiffs to the mix. Astonishing stuff. Great dub. It talks about smoking as well. The release is a part of the discography of Sirona-Records, the prolific French imprint. Oedine is a beatific, atmospheric progression based on a pitched-up, lengthy droning of a Southeast female voice and being backed up by calm rhythms and swirling electronic effects. The most blissful composition on it without any doubt. That reminds me of Holger Czukay's Canaxis 5 and a composition called Boat Woman Song. RIP Holger we miss you! At Shoot Me Hu Creix sings I look out of the window I hear the birds are singing but I don't care. Oh yeah, it sounds so elegantly arrogant and lofty and even absurd yet the result is all but absurdity yet it makes my face smiling. In a nutshell call it excellent yet deformational (pop) music.
