8/10 Spudman101 Customer review, 9th December 2014
I picked this up after Record Store Day on the basis that it was pretty cheap and I had enjoyed Evian Christ's previous EP and live performance when I saw him supporting Purity Ring.
The single 20 minute long track on this record is much more ambient than anything on the Kings and Them EP and it doesn't contain any of the Hip Hop elements of those tracks either. It really floats around somewhere between musique concrète, field recordings and post rock more than anything else... and I love it.
There are electronic ticking and buzzing sounds that rise towards the surface every now and again and bring to mind experimental science fiction films like THX 1138 or La Jetée, then they sink in to the background and field recordings or muffled spoken word comes to the fore. The whole thing feels fluid and evolving and from the ominous opening to the fade out it really projects atmosphere.
