Residents-like: gentle yet off-kilter and disturbed/disturbing, with some short digestive-sound tracks in between the main bits. Droney, minimalist, yet organic. Half instrumentals, half otherworld songs (plus that sprinkling of disposable short experiments). Like stumbling into a pagan coven- the witches are friendly, mostly...

1.sped up voice cracks, sounds like balloons farting and chatting
+2.Gamelan-like with voice-like accompaniment, pseudo-chanting. Measured, ritualistic
3.Voice crack
+4. bells, gentle, warbling, crooning trumpet. Halfway to a lullabye
5. Quiet noise-drone, watery static, loud crescendo near end
+6. Rhythms and crackles, hushed F vocal, frightful
7. silence, dead air
+8.Like shortwave- rhythmic morse-code like beeps over static. Meditative minimalism
+9.Creepy folk-like song, repetitive chime, toy piano, trumpet, with a world-weary F voc
10. Warped vocal talking about tax code, then strident multi-tracked vocals w/high-pitched tone
+11. Dirge organ & drums, ritualistic chant
+12. Like a middle eastern prayer
