MAPS & DIAGRAMS then. We've been waiting for this new album to come from Japan for what seems like eons now. Finally it's here and 'Antennas And Signals' is well worth the wait. It seems there's a bit of an electronica void at the mo with electronic labels releasing indie or doing the dubstep thing to cash in so it's refreshing to hear something some decent melodic electronica again. To be honest there's nothing new on this album you wouldn't have heard before. It's a little bit crunchy at times, clicky at other times and it's often cracking and fizzing like some alka seltzer. There's hints of Funckarma in there and some of the more mellow Quinoline Yellow and it sounds like it would fit quite nicely on the Scape label. But it's done so well..... that's the difference..... By the time you hit your 4th album you really get going oui? This is space age lounge music at the future truckstop cafe. When you're ordering you're full greasy breakfast (in pill shaped form) this is what will be on soothing your precious futuristic brains. Add to that a well dodgy 70's Roger Dean style 70's prog sleeve and you've got our album of the week. Absolutely lovely.

So, what do you think?
