Last time I checked in, Tim "Love" Lee was known for making San-Fran style downtempoish tracks, none of which I confess made me particularly waiting on pins for his next piece of output.

What he has done here is create one of the best avant-garde records I have ever heard. Rare is it that I hear a style that is totally fresh: this record delves into almost pure dissonance then pulls you back with a riff or something that almost sounds like the beginnings of a sample-based breakbeat tune, only to drop out again. Even at its most abstract, every noise means something: there is never a foray into pointless "fruitless intensification".

As an ADHD sufferer it's rare that I can put something on and have it activate my brain in such a way that I can pay perfect attention, yet read challenging graduate-level readings at the same time. In short, this release is highly recommended for those with a taste for experimental sounds.
