Kouns’ lyrical vignettes are full of disturbing yet precisely
rendered detail. His poetry is sharp; his thoughts have impact. As if
scared of the vision he has aired, he allows the song’s structure to
dissolve in a barrage of retro computer game chirps and thundering
distorted drone. This is like nothing else.The vocals stretch and
change shape throughout; operatic warbles giving way to staccato beat
poet utterances - all managing to convey emotion successfully, if
unconventionally. The love songs here hammer at your conscience, dent
your cynicism and bruise your contempt. Drenched in an omnipresent
inventiveness, Kouns’ textured room tones and iambic electronica
prolapse in delightful circus pop and modem riffage. Like a modern,
less inflated and self-consciously ‘far-out’ Trout Mask Replica, Kouns
has created a subtle, chaotic masterpiece.
