Slow, icy and a bit dreamy: this is how Bauri's SLACKER JOURNAL starts off. "Vintetar" has an aquatic feel, with bubbles effervescing all around, while "Knusfilur" starts a climb up an glacial mountain. The songs drift one into another, as if part of the same blizzard, the same sheet of white that covers the landscape. "Kolikok" seems to blow in and hover there, while "Snowflake" sounds heavier than its title would imply. On "Lembit," the machines take over, and the humans say a prayer on "Barfota Nakenfis." The quality stays consistently high -- there's less slacking here than you'd expect.

I pulled this disc out again after not listening to it awhile. Its quite good. Very reminiscent of Autechre's "Amber" in places (track six), but overall feels snowier. Probably because he's Swedish. Bauri's biggest strengths arise out of his skill with song structure and putting together a melody. The tracks feel effortless and natural. The whole album flows. No one track stands out above any others. This is not necessarily always a good thing, but in this case it makes for a relaxing unified listen.
