Album Review

Reviewed 2004-11-14
Billed as "experimental pop songs," these are abstract soundscapes made of cut-up and slowed-down tracks that probably started as parts of pop songs. (See the warped image of a cassette tape on the back cover - that's an idea of the sounds in here).

Cool stuff -- playful and mysterious, even a bit ambient.

1- Swampy-slow groaning. More like "1/4" speed than 1/2 speed. Cool!
2- Slow and dark... almost a goth feel. Later, some friendly plinks.
3- Creeping and dark
4- Lots of backwards drums! Touches of gloopy voices.
5- Slow, a bit quiet. With groans and video-game sounds
6- A slow, evil march in the distance. Caution: Abrupt shift near the end
7- Resembles a "normal" ambient track in spots. Very nice.
8- Soothing synth chords and non-soothing growly sounds
9- Crunchy samples in rhythm
10- Voices, all slowed down and spooky
