9/10 Brian Staff review, 17 November 2011

I can't believe I've got this guy again, he's by far one of the most exciting artists to ever land on Captured Tracks and now you've a fresh EP opening with a hefty chunk of intense, driving motorik/electronic nu-goth to contend with. I think it's that distinctive sound he's hit upon that drives people wild. I reckon the second track is like a non-excruciating update of early Sisters of Mercy moods without the hilarious stentorian vocals but with that embryonic Cocteaus /Joy Division bass rumbling along, underpinning a murky chiming guitar and a brooding drum machine. It's like an evil 'Marianne' but loads better, not a Leonard Cohen fixation in sight! Luis Vasquez appears to deploy vocals quite sparingly in a snaky mantra-style hiss, comin' across like a blast of air being expelled out of the corner of the song. 'Total Decay' is a brilliantly doom-laden thing indeed; slow percussive gallop; fuzzy, fizzing synths; sheets of cascading black psychedelia and occasional yelps of existential angst. Concluding with the excellent (but far too short) tribal space-techno of 'Visions' this EP neatly represents the vast majority of his cerebral moods and serves as a perfect companion piece to his debut album which we could never, ever keep on our shelves for more than a couple of days. If you liked that I'm afraid you have got to check this beauty out too.....
