Mochipet's high-tech kinetics are on full display here, with simple bare-bones melodies heavily peppered by stuttering, double-dutch robotic barks and growls. "Labha" has drill & bass jabbering relentlessly over haunting violin strains, while pretty "Moha" gets all bombastic Aphex. "Dosa"'s heavy percussion eventually subsides into a sweet little piano motif and some plucked strings, jumpy and at times intriguingly pentatonic. Meanwhile, "Polka Electronic Death Country" is a freaking fantastic concept-Mochipet's rendition puts the emphasis on the "death" part, all hellfire roars and pure unrest.
