Worriedaboutsatan is an electronic band formed by two gents from Leeds, UK, and upon first listening might be a bit out of place on a site like ours; their music falls in the category of minimal techno / IDM. After two EPs they have released their album "Arrivals" on Gizeh Records.

As soon as the opening tracks "One Down" and "Evil Dogs" kick in, the album goes straight into trippy techno territory with echoing electronics and deep, soft, subdued beats. My first association is (I would say of course) is Aphex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works '85-'92". But that really says more about the depth of my knowledge of IDM and minimal techno. Earlier work by the band would show influences of post-rock and there are still traces of that in tracks like "You're In My Thoughts". But much more pervasive are influences of glitch in that track and especially in the very pleasant "History Is Made At Night". The songs are interspersed with some short spacey dark ambient interludes that made me think of Inade, probably due to the robot-esque vocals reading out strings of numbers.

In the end Worriedaboutsatan brings you an excellent mix that is well suited for some downtime, music to relax to and music that will certainly work late at night. Recommended.

We received a copy of the limited edition (100 pcs.) which features two extra tracks, radio edits of "Evil Dogs" and "You're In My Thoughts". Nice, but I would rather buy this edition for its nicely designed hand-made packaging.
