There's a very appealing retro-futurist narrative to be imagined whilst listening to this album.
'Nil Admirari' is quite a brutal and noisy opening track, with what I imagine is the sound of a spacecraft engine burning up in the atmosphere of a foreign planet. 'Describing Bodies' marches singularly forward on a fluorescent drone.
'Pelham Island Road' cheekily nabs and slows down the synth-line from Boards of Canada's track 'Pete Standing Alone' and is beautiful and graceful. 'Where Does Time Go' pulses away on soft bleeping tones and floats in its own pre-MP3 analogue space as I embrace the irony of listening to it via my iPod.
'Preyouandi' contains fussy and watery sounding percussion, like bowls and pots flitting against each other as they float on a choppy wave, and an awkward synth scatting about beneath the surface.
If you like music that's ambient and quite spacey, and don't mind the repetition that comes with evoking the infinite expanse and sweep of drone then this is well worth a listen.
