8/10 Mike Staff review, 05 September 2013
I’ve not crossed paths with this trio Saroos before, but this is in fact their third album and their members have played in bands like The Notwist and Lali Puna so I guess that’s more my fault than theirs at this point. They make a strangely woozy post-dubby sound which I initially thought was the work of an electronic producer before I did my homework and realised they’re a band. It’s got shades of that post-Burial driftstep sound but transcribed into a soundtrack-inspired post-dub context, something like Forest Swords or Horror Inc.
It’s chilled out and hypnotic, led by drifting synths and a mixture of live and electronic beats, with a weird sheen of wibbly murk and some tastefully used samples. We’re having to rush through the reviews a bit this week so I don’t have time to say a lot about this but I enjoyed it very much!
