The sonic stampede is at its most crushing on "Jupiter Attack," where throngs of percussion scuttle erratically over one another as two lines wrestle in a battle of the lower frequencies. There's too much going on at once for there to be any hook, melodic or percussive, to latch on to fully. In contrast, "Inter Metro" is built upon a slimmer frame of more traceable elements, and consequently invites an easier engagement with the plucky bass-chord-hi-hat exchange.
Mosher's best work is featured on the b-side. Metronomic hats keep the regimental "Mass Transit" in stomping time with the wax and wane of its bassline as a skittish sequence provides background buoyancy. It has a welcome straightforwardness, which is seemingly becoming some kind of Dolly prerequisite. "CIP" is more soothing than square-shooting—a chord fest of the Gherkin variety—fitting aptly, for better or worse, to the current retro vogue.
