Album Review
Natalie Ruiz Tofano
Reviewed 2007-01-09 
Playful & upbeat electronica, each song has distinct & unique mixture of sounds, almost all instrumental. Debut release from drummer/producer Kyle Briggs, based in Portland (self-released). Described as electro-acoustic experimentalism.
No FCCs Favs: all!

1 – mid/high-tempo electronica, dreamy & bright. Fade-in build up; soft repetitive fem vox; intricate mixture of multiple heavy & light beats, w/layers of swirling acoustic sounds

2 – mid-tempo jazz w/various talking vocal samples. Awesome mix of fast drum beats w/layers of jazzy bass & strings (among a few other sampled instruments)

3 – mid-tempo electro guitar mixed w/heavy bass & soft, swirling electro-acoustic sounds. Layers & layers of drum beats & electro guitar, woa!

4 – the groovy tune. mid-tempo, bright & a little “worldly” sounding w/sampled sounds and fem singing. More mixtures of electro-acoustic sounds

5 – the “darker” tune; heavy, driving electro bass w/strings, electro guitar layers, & fuzzy scratching samples; again w/layers of drum beats
