8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 09 December 2010
Weird one this. It starts of with a slow, heavy tribal groove like Faust or summat but less fucking terrifying. Then another tune comes in and it's like, more steady, rigid percussion with some dystopian synths. It really does sound like a Faust record from the mid-90s given a kind of cyber-dub makeover. I don't know how much involvement each AMT & Stearica have here but these Italians definitely inhabit a post-rock world where, further on into this collaboration, interesting syncopated drum patterns appear & metronomic loops rub shoulders with some blissed-out electronics & insistent (sometimes dubby) bass work. Track 5 takes a more screeing industrial turn with a scary cavernous feel. Some duffer mentioned "65daysofstatic lite" but I think it's just less muddled & irritatingly layered than the Sheffield gang's electro-rock hybrid. More fittingly, mention has been made of some of the Temporary Residence stuff. This has an atmosphere & dynamism reminiscent of those halcyon days, plus the modern Faust comparisons continue to stand tall towards the conclusion of this pan-global mind-trip. Nice work lads!
