FURT admire density. Their samplers behave like busy hives, communally sucking in, chewing, swallowing, then regurgitating in a persistent shower of sound. Much of the matter is generated by old-fashioned acoustic instruments, granulated into a fresh existence. Wood, metal, plastic. These might be the materials. Or not. ... FURT’s fast attack is maintained throughout, dynamic in the extreme. They are terminally hyperactive... Barrett and Obermayer sustain an intense atmosphere of busy resourcefulness, filling their long developments with an impressively contrasting range of sound. Their experimentation never loses its vital lust for visceral thrills. FURT’s only fear is the silence, used so sparingly on this disc.
