(2010, The Social Registry) USA, NY
I’m really impressed by the wide variety of sounds built only with a guitar (with weirdly crossed strings in X) a sax (with amazing effects) and some handclaps.
It sounds like a tribal-hypnotic song.
The production is awesome and the Finale at 6:30 with this saturation touch is massive.
Here is a live video : http://vimeo.com/10494524
I love too Don’t Touch Me with this video games glitches, which remind me of some songs of Fantomas’ “Suspended Animation”.
Then New Slaves is a big build-up à la “The Hard” Ep.
Finally, the artwork is great, this album is very interesting.
COUP DE COEUR : MY TOP 5

The Hard Ep
(2008, Three One G) USA, NY
I bought this Ep at the halloween discounts on 31G.
I was intriged by this sound repeated again and again for minuts.
This Ep is only one track : a huge build-up very weird and experimental.
The soundscapes in it are very impressive, there is a huge work on the effects on the sax and the guitar.
I love the rhythmic build-up at 11:00.
This Ep is as surprising as its cover.
