Well, I have nothing better to do than pretend to review a generic electronica record that sounds like all the other generic electronica records I have. I guess that is harsh, Bauri is not bad at all, they were one of the first bands I was recommended to check out playing this kind of stuff so I have a certain 'allegiance' to them which means I end buying their records all the time. I can't say I have ever heard a bad Bauri record either, nice. This is that pretty hypnotic style of electronica, I tend to only put this stuff on when I am drunk as it soothes my head and sort of makes me hit autopilot. I'll stick on this record and 5 seconds later I have made a strikingly dashing 'political' post on a bulletin board that will incite 100 responses from angry Americans. In fact what I wrote was: "fghhss fgggrm bfff?" and the 100 responses were simply there because 100 angry Americans are at work and they in a shitty office job in Los Angeles and they'd rather not be.

Now I've adopted the headphones about half way through this first track and the effect is doubled - if I am not careful, this review will descend into a string of incisive politcal and global comment that will cause humanity to stop in it's tracks and consider it's actions. Alternatively, I will witter on randomly for another couple of sentences, whilst hypnotically fizzing electronica continues about it's melodic way in my ears, with lots of pops, buzzes and clicks and soundscapes. It perhaps has more beats than I prefer, and if someone came up to me and said "TELL ME WHICH FZZTWHIRCLICKBEAT ELECTRONICA BAND YOU WOULD LISTEN TO IF THERE WAS ONLY ONE OF THEM
Yeah, Bauri is certainly any good, but I seriously have to question the point of owning more than 4 or 5 records that sound exactly like this. Oh what have I become.
