Clarity and sweetness are the main operating principles here, across four tracks that variously recall Metro Area, Osborne and Todd Terje. "Mustard Parasol" is as much "song" as "track," with rotating synthesizer leads trading off in a quasi-verse-chorus-verse pattern, and a naïve 303 melody somersaulting above soft arpeggios and a gentle robo-disco bassline. It's a dizzy, delightful thing, certainly the most outgoing track on the record; "Decaying World," as you might guess from the title, is darker, but almost as catchy, and it has an even more expansive sense of structure, with a bassline reminiscent of Metro Area's "Miura" blossoming into wide-open jazzy space disco.
"Flat Rate" and "Three Days of Entropy" both employ snapping, syncopated electro grooves, but neither sound quite like classic electro as we're used to it, even given the distinctly Drexciya-like arpeggio that worms its way through "Three Days of Entropy"—they're softer, milkier, more light-hearted. That's especially true of "Flat Rate," whose tremolo lead evokes kazoo-grade levels of whimsy, even as cartoonish bass zaps snap their jaws below.
