The territory that Jurado explores is not for those seeking easy answers wrapped up in pop melodies.
It’s not a dull listen, because one never knows just how a song is going to end up.
Before the disc is even out of the case you expect to have your speakers blown to bits under a barrage of nose-bleed techno.
This is a work of art of an artist whose creative spark doesn’t seem to sell out regardless of the circumstances.
I hear a band with the talent and skill to be more than what they are, but instead, settling for a sound that doesn’t do their lyrics justice.
Every song here could be a single.
A nice blend of accessibility and ambiguity reminiscent of Boards of Canada or Autechre’s less complex pieces.
In the end I couldn’t enjoy this for what it was, regardless of whether I ever figured out what that was.
It’s a riveting experience throughout and disturbs and entices in equal measure.
It’s not all bad but there are far more interesting examples of this genre to be discovered.
