8/10 Brian Staff review, 20 April 2011
Bit of a quiet legend is this guy, Laurent Girard. He's been making sublime melodic electronica & sound-art with an organic edge for years, releases for electronische labels colossuses such as Static Caravan, Bad Boy Budgie and My Dad is an Antelope amongst others. The last two may be made up. Flicking through there's plenty of rich sonic detail here. The songs all appear to be miniatures - pieces of incidental music if you like. Melancholic piano rubs up against industrial beats, ricocheting techno disappears into a plumbing vortex, pastoral psychedelic folk will be found curling up next to clickety badminton style liquid glitch & wistful curious electronica ala AFX's tenderest moments is found just lounging around in tiny "song chairs" situated near the central hub of the album. There's plenty here, especially for those who enjoy music in soundtracky snippets. This is one of them & it is another little gem from the hardy Frenchman. I'd like to say stalwart but it's a dreadful word so I won't!
