• 120 DAYS: GREAT ROLLING STONE SINGLE REVIEW

    "Hey, kids, its time for another revival of krautrock, the jammy psychedelia-meets electronica style conceived by the German groups like Neu! and Kraftwerk in the 1970s. On this nine-minute track, Norway`s 120 Days give the genre a more apocalyptic spin with frontman undertow, setting a Sixties pop melody over a lightb guitar jangle, then ...

  • TOY: GUARDIAN REVIEW

    "It's impossible not to admire the ingenuity of Alisdair Stirling and Jorgen Traeen, the Anglo-Norwegian duo known as Toy. On the other hand, it's hard to take a whole album of their relentlessly cheerful electronica. The music they make is tuneful and up-tempo, and underpinned by a delight in childish things such as ...

  • LINDSTRØM: GREAT PITCHFORK TRACK REVIEW

    Here Green recycles a few scraps of melody from Lindstrøm's cinematic, slow-burning "Pesto Og Kolera"-- smart nips and tucks that don't revamp the original, just punch it up and make it better. He rubberizes the scrawny bassline, sneaks in a darting guitar, then hangs a swank filigree of live keys. All the while ...

The EP opens with a percussive, almost gamelan slice of ...
