Comment: by listening to this 6-notch release it is like entering into a time shuttle and journeying back in time for 18 years. Back to the era of which was predominated by such labels as Mille Plateaux, and Morr Music which were being platforms for releasing indie-drenched electronic music (otherwise it would loosely be named acidic artsy synth-pop). Later on, there were netlabels which started to appear for such kind of music (the likes of Aerotone, Poni Republic, Error! Lo-Fi, 12rec, Petite & Jolie, No-Source). The release comes out of the umbrella of Petite & Jolie by providing crispy glitch-imbued rhythmic sections to back up subtle melodic progressions, and vice versa. Emotionally it flips in and out on a border of laid back atmosphere and intensified, even obsessive insight. Indeed, it brings playful dynamics and propulsive tension into the blend. The final part Au Revoir Pt 2 imitates adeptly Parisian street music melodies thereafter putting them under an algorithmic application of electronic music for to provide a proper farewell. That's the point of it. In a word, it a nice and nostalgic contemplation for a contemporary listener. So let's crank up the engine and embark on the journey.
