9/10 Brian Staff review, 11 October 2012

This is possibly the strangest multi-media package we’ve ever had in by anyone. On a baffling array of formats, you also have a difficult choice to make with two different styles of headphones on offer so you can really dig the “sonic stylings” as these two legendary mad old boffins intended them to be heard, man.

The lead track from this teaser EP is called ‘Very Large Green Triangles’ and relates to a time these cheeky innovators dropped acid in a sweet shop and had an hallucinatory mad afternoon emptying endless boxes of Quality Street out onto the floor, then laughing as the exotic cult chocolate truffle treats rapidly expanded in front of their very eyes. This incident was met with much hostility by the seething owner who made them pick up every last morsel before taking them both by the seat of their mischievous collective arse and drop-kicking them onto the snowy pavement outside. This story is true.

It’s a fucking great track that comes across as a sublime slice of incredibly joyous and cinematic tripped-out techno-pop with sweet bells, chimes and xylophone flourishes, hypnotic vocal and choral loops and so much else. A great primer for their forthcoming 2013 LP.
The Rrose remix of ‘You’ is tremendous too, a spacious roller of a techno epic spilling with scintillating wooshing astral waves and cosmic panning riding along with an insistent low-end nudge of a monoton groove and a steady echo-laden clap of a beat. Tons of atmosphere from this fine Sandwell District affiliated producer...

The final piece seemingly goes on forever, both this and the opener have vocal material taken from telepathy/psychic sessions. ‘Just Waves’ consists of almost thirteen minutes of (extremely cleverly) layered, shifting human chuntering, both male and female, where certain inflections and lo/hi tones are beautifully juxtaposed. I also like the added choral intonation and solitary organ drone that sits beneath the melee. This could possibly do your nut in on the wrong day but heard at a lower volume through headphones (although not the custom ones you receive with your collectors set) it is an almost psychedelic pleasure that fills your mind with wonder.
