8/10 Mike Staff review, 03 April 2014
Jan St Werner of Mouse on Mars notoriety is getting arty on this new 10", which is beautifully presented with a numbered insert, an actual photograph, and most excitingly of all, a purple 10" plastic disc which is screenprinted on one side. As an added gimmick, if you put this plastic disc on your record player at 45rpm and place your needle on its "groove", you can hear a musical composition by St Werner himself. How ingenious.
The sounds on this side are made with synthesizers, a kind of piano from the future, which bleep and whistle and drone in a womb-like analogue soup while brighter, twitchier shimmers sometimes sit atop them cheekily. It's loopy and blurry and relaxing, a warm sleepy lull of wacked out synth drift. It may make you feel like you've been taking psychedelic drugs when you haven't been taking psychedelic drugs.
