On the flip, Le Chocolat Noir's psychedelic electro and deadpan vocals are mesmerizing. His angsty expressions could slide into cliché, but placed against layers of gurgling melodic synths they feel meditative. "Tanka Linija" hypnotizes with its trippy textures, and both "Dressed In Black" and "Just A Little Bit More," with their tinges of post-punk guitar and acid, slip in and out of discernible rhythms. The latter's pitched-down voice is a highlight, speaking ominously about committing to a crazed lover. Like the rest of the EP, it's hard hitting, strange and playful.
