Repeat Repeat Squints
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Soma
On "Flip Flop," the first track on Repeat Repeat's album of gleefully off-kilter beats and loop-driven minimalism, a male voice pops in over the watery synths and squelchy beats to occasionally deliver a nonchalant "uh huh." Humorous dashes like these are the highlight of this album, which is a showcase of Dave Congreve's and Mark Rutherford's acid house roots. The two take their work seriously, delivering slick, sick tracks, but they never get buried beneath their own bombast. The album's accessibility borders on pop, but ultimately the two steer clear of radio-style catchiness-a wise choice.
