8/10 Mike Staff review, 06 February 2014

I'm not familiar with Andrew Paine although a quick search tells me he has a few records out and I've just not been paying enough attention. Richard Youngs I do know though, since he brings out a new album of his mind-melting experimental singer/songwriterisms every three or four months. This is not the pair's first collaboration. Their 'Rotten Masters' EP was described by none other than our Clint as "three tracks of scree which resembles a Napalm Death concert taking place in a padded cell".

You wouldn't know it to listen to this one though! There are five tracks on this 45rpm 7" and they're all quite brief passages of electronic minimal pop. Very minimal, admittedly - the negative space on this EP is an instrument in its own right. My favourite of the tracks is 'Paradigm State And Data', with a crushed and crunchy synth loop accompanied by an unsettling descending vocal line from Youngs. I'm assuming Andrew Paine must've done the electronics here and Youngs seems to be doing all the singing and the press release gives nothing away regarding who's doing what. Often the electronic parts seem quite amorphous and the songs rely on the vocals for their structure, but it's not a difficult listen at all.

It's a curious little EP and you'll find yourself listening to it three or four times in a row just trying to get your head round it.
