This may be the most experimental release yet on Infraction. That's not necessarily a good thing...

Track 1 is very noisy, harsh, busy. It approaches white noise in its effect. However, if you turn the volume down so you don't go mental, the wavy drone is mesmerizing. There's enough change to keep it interesting. Definitely not my type of music, but I've played it a few times and don't mind it. Good background listening.

Track 2 begins with alien drones and what sounds like processed guitars, a la Seefeel. Much less harsh, but equally disturbing. Dissonant howlings come and go. Halfway through, the guitars exit, but the howling stays and an eerie marching-band drummer glides in the mix. Quite haunting and somewhat interesting. Again, not my cup of tea but it holds my interest.

The last track is airy, springtime, floaty ambience. Music for a reflective mood, and it won't scare off your friends. Reminds me of early Orb stuff, but without any beats or much progression. Found-sound samples come and go. Nice!

Really, I don't know what to do with this CD. It's really not my type of music, lacking much traditional structure, but I find myself liking it more on each listen. I guess that makes it worth a listen!
