Comment: what is that? Is it a reaction to electroclash music having been so prevalent in the beginning of the 00s? On the other side, it could be admitted to be a subdued and strongly decelerated version of Ladytron. Samarah provides a remarkably more lo-fi, primitive and minimal counterpoint to it. It is just the truth in a half measure. The listener can hear progressions toward the aesthetic of dream pop. Or are the progressions instead of it something reflecting upon the more immersive and ghastly trajectories by Throbbing Gristle? The truth is obviously somewhere out there. The issue is a part of the discography of Nishi, No Type, and Panospria, a quite weird and important angle from Canada within the netlabel/webaudio world. Indeed, robots smile too but the question is whether the smile is human-friendly or not?
