Comment: these 47 minutes do create the impression of a cohesive release while listening to it the listener can feel common parts coming from one track and then transmitting into another. By the way, this is the method of this 9-track album by using one and the same element in different tracks, so it can be admitted it is an economical approach and effective result at the same time. On the other side, although one can perceive some commonness between the tracks there are also up disparate peaks. For instance, at Scotch Mist the track is built up on revolving piano chords, dreamy female vocal samples, and synthesised orchestrations and something else even more and all of that will be evolving and co-operating through the course in an irresistible manner. It is called synergy, isn't? The following track Elastoplast is remarkably more spastic and nervous – the beats are cut-up, and glitched-out yet being backed up by a beatific sloping upward. At times there are represented slight echoes, and vague sonic effects atop the algorithm of IDM-tinged rhythms. Undoubtedly it does not suffocate the spacey keenness of the release. It reminds me of some Estonian IDM/experimental electronic romantics like Uni, and Myrakaru for the beginning of the 00s. The issue is a part of the discography of Swishcotheque. Top slab.
