- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
The equivalent to a nature documentarian slow-panning his camera through a kelp forest, the compositions of Californian production partners Nick Huntington and Michael McGroarty (a.k.a. Freescha) waft with viscous resonance. This two-disc set acts as a catch-all for the vinyl, demo, outtake, and online-only rarities that the downtempo duo has released into the same waters that nourish Boards of Canada, Christ., Casino Versus Japan, and Marumari, among others. These 23 tracks collect the ripples and rivulets running through Freescha’s embryonic fluid. Highlights–equally stippled with low- and mid-lights–include "Bulb," "Lift," "Pequod," "Slo-Peeq," and "Lover Munchkin," all redolent with pressurized snares and globules of synths.
