Heavy, broken-beat drums abound on the three vinyl originals, along with plenty of hissing ambiance, but as intense as they are, they're also curiously catchy. First up is the most peak-time-ready track, "School Phosphene," whose steam-rolling attack is directed by a shrieking, instantly memorable lead riff. "Beneath The Kitchen Faucet" and "Mouth Of Which" both loop what sound like short, re-sculpted vocal samples in with gritty machine funk and high-tech musique concrète, further emphasizing Kondo's penchant for building tension with layers of detail. "Mouth Of Which" is my favorite thing here—it's just a little more laidback than the others, and manages to sound at once sinister and seductive.
Genesa head Scalameriya turns in a lean and (relatively) lighter remix of "Mouth Of Which" that features a long drop in the middle. A digital-only track from Kondo, "Moon Phase Letterpress," shows him putting aside his percussion to further indulge his abstract tendencies, but the real winners are the other sharp, focused cuts.
