I got this just from the interesting description on the Baked goods list. It described it as an electro Gescom (or something like that). Its really bleepy and the beats are pretty jumbled (but not as jumbled as anyone like Kid606 or Hrvatski) and there is the ever present dark synths underneath (think Autechre / Bauri). The second side incorporates some almost house beats, they don't really sound out of place and the bizarre high pitched effects and scratchy rhythms keep this from sounding like anything on Global Underground or anything shit like that! The second track on the second side sounds like Boards Of Canada doing the Arovane track "seaside". Its just amazing! The track literally just washes over you with a depressing synth lead underneath. This is well worth getting, all the tracks are great and you get a load of tracks instead of just two (which most electronica records seem to have).
