The album contains a certain tempo, a slow, torpid rhythm, manifesting itself in lingering sequences and deep percussive elements. In the second track, that actually results in a sound similar to my mother's old washing machine. It's odd, because in my childhood, I used to
imagine "music" with that washing machine as a constant rhythm and all kind of noises as melodic or percussive elements. '2' could actually be one of the tracks I would have made with that thing.
On '3' the noise-elements seem to take the upperhand, as the track gets an "underwater" feel and a sharp, pungent beating on metal objects. This is arguably the harshest track on this album, not suitable for sensitive beings. '4' drives on an annoying phone-sound and eerie soundscapes. Well, usually that would be annoying, here it's just damn interesting to see how far these artists can go to create their music.
If I have to compare the music to other acts, I think I'll refer MZ412, Zoviet France and Machinefabriek. You know, experimental ambient with a dark twist and a haunting atmosphere, balancing on the thin edge between music and noise. The droned-out '5' is my personal favorite but I'm sure I'll be listening to this thing a lot more from now on. Besides, it contains one of the absolute key-elements for decent ambient music: fit in with environmental sounds like roadworks, trains, birds and the always interesting discussions of my neighbours.
