Comment: if to compare it to a nearby album review Parametic Delay's Love Song Before Sleeping (2011, No-Source) you can draw parallels on glitched-out sounds and IDM-esque cadences yet on the other side it is a disparate case for sure. It is not inflected by indie pop at all these five tracks get their power from outer space to bring it forth through mundane technical support and electronics. That's cool, that's intriguing. Deus ex machina. Although the first two tracks (Dialogue, Phantasm) are quite gentle by its nature the rest of the whole is remarkably more spaced-out and murky in its deliberatedly haphazard playfulness. It reminds me a bit of Autechre, the duo's abstract, mathematical techno. Debris and waste will be employed to the maximal extent. It sounds like a Poltergeist would play somewhere in the middle of a wasteland. This mind-provoking outing is a bit of the discography Hz-Records.
