Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-07-24 
A hipster blend of low-key guitar jazz with electronics. Slow, calm themes coupled with analog-sounding synths and effects.

Many tracks have definite jazz "heads" (3, 6), with guitar lines veering into angular territory. Others are unjazzy synthesizer soundscapes (1, 8, 9). Cool stuff either way, but slow moving -- it might not grab you at first, but if the phrase "synth soundscape" appeals to you, give it a try.

1- Swirling, sad bowed bass
2*- Laid back guitar, slow. Starts out pretty, then gets angular.
3*- Mid/fast with jagged, disjoint theme
4*- Fast swirling drums, with even-handed guitar; calm overall.
Ends with electronic blast.
5- Slow and quiet
6- Brisk, mid/fast theme that pauses for sparse, spacey electronics
7- Eerie and slow. Starts with keyboard lead, then guitar joins in
8- Analog synth, slow and melodramatic
9- Slow and almost folky. Nostalgic chords with electronic garbling
