8/10 Brian Staff review, 08 December 2011
I like the sound of this album. The others in the office aren't keen but once immersed in the world of headphones, KPLR's jittery cyber-techno starts to evolve in intriguing meditative patterns. It's a hard one to review really as this is techno taking off into more twittering abstracted tinnitus-inducing fields with the propulsion, for example, on 'Tny Mzk' derived from a stuttering gribbet, the “melodies” being indeed from Mars, seemingly forged from electronic squeaks, twitters and pulses. I've always seen techno as being ideologically limitless as there are countless combinations that can be created, this is one such branch that sounds pretty futuristic to me although a lot of what makes techno appealing in my book is a strong meaty groove and a tidy, hypnotic rhythm. KPLR creates a much more glitchy form of braindance on his self-titled debut which is reasonably fresh-sounding pitch-wise - much of it sounds like digital birdsong over cool minimal loops - but doesn't think too far outside the box in terms of rhythmic arrangement, it's not blowing me hard like the recent Dalglish collection, now that is sonic architecture...this is kids' digital building blocks in comparison but don't let that put you off investigating.
