8/10 Clinton Staff review, 31 March 2016
With Laurie otherwise engaged doing the job of a man currently sat at home playing, it turns to his work grandad to assess the 'tronica. Avalon Emerson is a lady who has chosen Berlin in which to reside though she hails originally from the sunny climes of San Francisco. Give me the choice of living in either I know which I'd choose. Anyway I'm not here to discuss her living arrangements so let's crack on with the EP.
It's great! The opening 'The Frontier' combines some pulsating percussion with a lead synth line which is genuinely happy. It's the sort of thing I'd imagine Kieran Hebden releasing on his Text imprint. It's tuneful, percussive and slightly odd and disconcerting. Like Kraftwerk now with Jaki Leibezeit programming the percussion. Overleaf we get two tracks, '2000 Species of Cacti' with is a burbling humming affair with a lead synth seemingly played by a kettle and a quick closing ambient-ish version of the title track.
