  1. OOIOO transforms what could be mush into wonderful, brilliant songs that fold and mutate the ideas they’re based on into moving and coherent narratives.
  2. By repurposing this music with a child’s lack of regard for history, they make it fresh.
  3. Bracing brilliance channelling the spirit of Yoko Ono, Le Tigre, Aphex Twin and Alice Coltrane.
  4. Under The Radar

  8. The album’s 13 songs are succinct but eventful: clever structures with a world of references, a short attention span and a vandalistic pleasure in stray noise.
