8/10 Mike Staff review, 27 January 2012
La Station Radar are a good little label who don't get an awful lot of attention, but I'm pretty much always impressed with their output. This three-track 12-inch from Pink Priest comprises three long synth drone pieces which slowly morph and swell, developing in character as notes are thrown in from all over the register to create not only a stillness but a growing sense of panic. It reminds me of that episode of Peep Show with Super Hans in the recording studio saying,”The longer the note...the more dread.” The second side opens in quite a dark, astral ambience that's pretty enveloping but still very much sticking to the layered synth drone formula which has been established on the first side, just more restrained and bassy. It gets more jarring in the middle and then towards the end there's more of a celestial feel with soft swirling high end tones joining the bassy thrum. If heavily layered synth drone is your thing, this'll space you right out.
