10/10 Leona Sock Customer review, 19th December 2010

Bristolian electronic maverick zoon van snook brings a wonderfully diverse sound on his début album, having decamped from Brighton's Cookshop label to join the ace mush label in the states.

What makes this record so damned charming is Snook's deployment of fragments of found sound which skitter effortlessly around the songs; sometimes rhythmically, sometimes melodically.There's chiming xylophones & the odd accordion wheeze, along with all manner of plucked instruments chopped & manipulated to within an inch of their life, however if this all sounds a little too nice & pretty, fear not!
Balancing the light are some more serious & sinister moments, with tracks such as `cuckoo' throwing in arpeggiated bass lines & heavy drums underpinning unsettling chord changes.

This is a great record that falls somewhere between the playfulness of Mum & Tunng; and the sound manipulations & melodics of Boards of Canada & Four Tet - eccentric Oddtronica brimming with invention & wit!
