Great avant-garde and weird electronica from an obscure pairing. It’s subtle in places and prominently loud in others. It swirls and spits its way around the ears with intimacy.

We experience odd and deliberately casual dialogue, off-putting at first but the deep choral sighs and swoons fall incessantly on certain tracks which are mesmerising. Elsewhere, frequency waves and transistor bursts stutter all over the place quite finely and all the tracks have a beautiful emotional musical thread drifting through them.

It’s a very good album but not one that is completely memorable, it burrows away into your brain like a new worm or mollusc, spewing finely woven entrails along the way. It also seems that some of the sounds within aren’t as far-out as they’d like to be. Yet, like a burrowed cavern, the general atmosphere is damp and heavy will unease and anxiety, perfect for the brooding moments in one’s life.
