8/10 Brian Staff review, 25 May 2012
God, I'm sat here in the baking heat in my room listening to this tranquil baby. The second track is particularly relevant to my near-immolated state being the sound of electronic crickets-on-crack chirruping excitedly, undercut with a deep gradually escalating tonal throb reminiscent of Eleh. Oh, and then the crickets fade into loads of delicious digital scrunch and static. Intense and involving.
I think there's some nice vinyl crackles on the next piece with the static sound of bristling bushes in the night breeze whilst ambling through deserted park at dusk. There's always the cerebral shimmering android lullaby tine pulsing underneath to keep you company at this ponderous juncture in your life. I'm maybe not academically clever enough to truly understand the conceptual nature of this CD but I love Chartier's stuff, I find him a really absorbing listen and Curgenven, who I'm less familiar with is obviously bringing the best out of him on this four track collaboration on the ever minimal L-NE imprint as they like to be called.
