This record is a bit of a misleading bugger really, it starts of with some sharp thin tonal frequency which is so annoying Mike proclaims it to possibly be the most annoying thing ever then our Kim comes plonks herself down next to me and starts playing hip-hop videos on YouTube whilst munching crisps! Probably just trying to make my job easier? Well it gets loads better, ends up being a dystopian drone record with some lovely ambient bloops beneath the creepy android hums and ominous tones that's making me feel simultaneously off-balance and slightly insane. The main hum sods off for a wee bit leaving a deep thrum of a hum to carry on annoying Mike then its younger friend comes back for a minute as it has forgotten its keys then it fucks off again leaving the deeper hum a little despondent and lonely. At one point the deep hum falters for a second, I'm sure it was a sob of existential hum despair? Well that's what this German sound artist has been up to recently, exploring the dynamics of relationships between frequencies. The Japanese fellow on the other side produces a discreet ambient piece that is quite lovely but no match for Business Lady's diatribe about searching for analogies to describe this job she adores so roundly. His second attempt to drive home the extent of his production skills leaves us agape with wonder at how the sound of a bunch of hyper-active atoms chattering in space can sound so charming. I like this record quite a lot but I don't know why.
