Freeform's debut album, ELASTIC SPEAKERS, came at the height of IDM, and you can hear all the requisite sounds: crunchy beats, angular melodies, industrial tones. "Unit" gets things going with some modest amount of funk in its bassline, while "Bubbled" sounds like a cathedral slowly sinking beneath the waves. "Ect" mixes sustained tones with bleepiness to great and moody effect. Freeform balances the more beat-oriented tracks with tonal interludes, which maintains a nice variation throughout -- as when the more harsh "Backspace" follows the softer "Infinite Timer." Though if you're looking for bounce, go no further than "Gammon Fonk," which carries the hip-hop feel into "Opp:expone." The pure abstraction returns in "Nenne:int3" and grows moodier in "Evolve." "Junction" is more mellow, with disembodied radio chatter creeping in throughout, and "Corde" goes for a slow majesty (though the hidden track knocks the album back into existence). The speakers may be elastic, but this album has plenty of stuff on which to flex your ears.
