sample the album:
"...one of the more fascinating aspects of this album is that it sounds quite like Bastien's mechanical music, although it is all played manually.The music has a tremendous energy and the duo's playing is inspired; their rhythms almost telepathically tight.The instrument's true identity remains a mistery, but it's best to simply enjoy their rich soundworld for what it is."-Mike Barnes, Wire Magazine
