Once again and as usual, the veryvoice of verygod nan-tea-tree is back with an absolutely unexpectable sound which may scare to death those waiting for their famous neo-folk... It's dancefloor time now folks! After their first and only intrusion into this world (remember Crowleymass...) they're back with four hilarious yet very groovy tunes (I cannot help laughing out loud whilst thinking of people shaking their bodies on the lines "who will deliver me from myself"!). Nevertheless as a joke just could not be a good point enough to publish something new, the sound had to be there too. And it is indeed! The two sides attempt to build their own particular atmosphere, starting with the very energic (and very similar) mixes of Thirlwell, Matmos slowing it down to a rather dreamy ending.
I only wish I had discovered this instead of home in a club or a party, where it would have been a complete hallucinatory - if not patripassianist - experience!
