"[...] subtly blooming tone fields that build to the kind of beautifully vibrating monoliths that would reconcile the percussive American fantasias of Harry Partch and Moondog with the gravity devouring industrial force of Kluster. Repeating tones give the set the feel of a heady modern minimalist working but with a klanging Neubauten edge, with ringing tones and voids of blistering feedback suspended over deep pools of pitch black electricity. Long, multi-movement tracks allow for full tonal immersion.
Set the controls for the heart of the sun! Highly recommended."
- DAVID KEENAN

"[...] across the six sides ‘Abstract Expressionism For The Ears’ finds these sound art titans sparring to craft an intoxicating listening experience that shifts and shimmers amid serenely snoozing glassy dream weaves to full on deep and heavy galactic dronal tidal which reference wise have them perched upon a sonic axis inhabited by all manner of woozy psychedelics, futurist soundtracks and meditative mosaics whilst simultaneously operating in out there minimalist left field boundary pushing frontiers.”
- MARKLOSINGTODAY / The Sunday Experience
