In contrast, Fengler's "Redefinition" is far more fluid, racing forward with the cadence of a speed skater. Its percussive elements are particularly superb, with 4/4 claps and a frantic shaker propelling things powerfully forward. He too uses the trick with the transcendent chords, though this time, there's nothing close to a diminishing of intensity to stop and admire them.
Constructed with a swaying drone, "Sleepwalker"'s bassline has a woozy, narcotic quality and the apple-crunchy, two-step percs play subtly with panning and delay. In the right state, you might think the sonic doubles that keep appearing are imagined. This time round, what's captivating about Rivet's simple-yet-beautiful melodies is not their unexpectedness; it's their ambiguity. Even with a few listens, it's hard to identify whether that's a modified voice wailing away, or just a clever bit of electronic sound design.
