"An eclectic trove of trinket-collage, field recordings, cling-clang, jazzy sax, synthery and percussive blips and rips; MK's third release is his first as a solo artist and truly showcases his prowess, bringing sensitively crafted intricacies to the forefront. If peace is what you're after then sprawl out and jam this ditty biddies!"

"The field recordist curls up after a long life and goes to sleep. The moment – the fall – the rise – the bridge – the break – eternally suspended in the midst of infinite sound.
A toy xylophone, screaming shoreline wind, liquid sliding on skin, dead radio whirling the drain, while stirring the spoon chinks the glass, razors buzz, the jazz cd skips, the car and the sound the land makes as you pass through it, insects in trees, blades on ice, the gutters melting, tapping typewriter, the beep of the life support machine, the clock on the wall."
