This record is what you get, when you mix together:

The faux-medieval sound of "Lustwandel"-era Roedelius with SNES Street Fighter II stage music, a dash of glorious cheese JVCD "Cyborg" Soundtrack merged with James Horner "Commando" martialism, some muffled Clams Casino style beat reductions & a few hazy DreamCatalogue-style vaporwave mirages. In between, there are are some cryptic, slowed down spoken word interludes, signifying nothing at all, hanging in the air like half-remembered ramblings of your over-eager 2nd semester social sciences mate from back in the day.

Well, to be honest, it sometimes sounds a bit too self-consciously lo-fi, in a "we like to perform our music in messy shared student apartments with extra-shitty equipment" kind of way. But the sound is so easy-going, laid-back & entertaining, this slight whiff of pretentiousness doesn't register that much.

The format of the tracks is right, too. Just little repetitive fragments without much progression, loosely attached to each other without any deeper order. They sound like half-formed creative figments of a smart musical mind, grabbed at random and put on vinyl.

It doesn't really sound like a substantial record at first, but the breadth of different motives and subtle musical allusions makes it a surprisingly rich and rewarding listen.

Excellent record once again.
Is it a comeback?
Who knows...
A must have.
