Around the muted 303 sequence of "Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase" are
threads of synth, glowing and floating like jellyfish tentacles. On the B-side, "Meiosis Gametes" tempers its blown-out bass frequencies and blasted disco crawl with a loop of bewitching melody. Both tracks are about nine minutes long and approach similar ideas from opposite angles: the drums of "Prophase" keep to a straight line as Gwyer's synths flourish and flow, and only the beat of "Meiosis Gametes" mutates into strange shapes. Each track is executed with a clarity and precision uncommon among such strains of noisy dance music. Even the beatless interlude "And Again Those Eyes" keeps its drifting analog tones anchored to a basic bass rhythm. What could become indulgent jams in the hands of lesser producers are functional yet evocative tracks in Gwyer's hands. How she balances the many contrasts of her sound makes this record another milestone in her career.
