5/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 May 2014
Impossible to pronounce name? Check. Madcap sleeve, lots of colours .....and a christmas tree? Check. Impossi-listen opening few minutes? Check. But this lot were more interested in the concept of melody than you may think on their previous effort 'Kultaista Kaupunkia Etsimassai'. After a few minutes of wierdnesss, ‘Alempana Kuin Enkelit’ breaks out into something representing a tune. ‘Arkistorotat’ lollops along like some early Mouse on Mars composition and ‘Nijura’ is full of oddball noises. But from thereon this group are really testing my patience. Where their previous record had some beautiful moments when they headed towards gorgeous loop-based ambience, here the technicolour cut and splice synth sounds are hard on the ears and anything approaching melody is jettisoned in the name of experimentalism.
There’s only so much experimental, ramshackle chaos you can take and despite me managing to make it to the second side, they’d passed the ‘fill level’ a long long time ago. Fans of Black Dice, Jim O’ Rourke’s chaotic side and early wild Animal Collective will probably cope better with it than me.
