The title track extends over 7 minutes from a solitary bass pulse into a slow, three dimensional industrial reduction heaving with uncomfortable bass weight and a sense of nervous expectation. It's like the bare, skeletal noise framework for darkest junglist hardcore stripped of its percussion - all bar a bass drum and intense shards of noise.
Albedo has more of a swing to it, dominated by a growling bassline and the metallic clunk of disjointed percussion at odds with the squashed funk lurking somewhere at its core. The template is extended on Earth, a brilliantly discordant club variant that sounds like an R&B mastertrack exploded into 100 constituent parts and put together not entirely in the right order. It builds and collapses into itself, a stylistic oddity that at one and the same time brings to mind Boards of Canada's re-working of Colonel Abrams' 'Trapped' and the extreme frequency vortex of the Raster Noton label.
