I don't think this CD is that weird to be honest. If you've heard anything on Warp Records (autechre, boards of canada etc,) then you'll kind of be familiar with some of the sounds contained within. It's crunched up techno fed into a sampler, messed around, reconstituted and then used as the soundtrack to a high falutin' Hoxton gallery installation. I like this CD a lot and find myself playing it without being aware of it! I'd call it bumpy-ambient cos it's in the background but also wants to knock the pictures off your wall. If you like some of the German electronic bands from the 70s then you'll find their influences here, filtered via 80s industrial stuff and 90s dub/spaced out electronica. The most shocking thing about this album is that it's on 4AD Records. What drugs are they on down at 4AD HQ these days?! There's barely a gothic note on the whole record. Cocteau Twins it aint!
This is plain wierd. No, not even plain, it's that much off the wall. It's kinda good though. Drum and basey in parts, strange noisy in others. Not something I would go out and buy, but this is not a bad record. The album's title points at something a little untoward, but track 7: "machine surrender/milk of the commander" really takes my award for track name of the year.
