    This is not a record for the faint-hearted. Hell, it should come with a health warning, but if you give it a chance you'll be rewarded with the most innovative electronic albums in a long time.

    That's Harakiri never loses its human touch. [No. 109, p.61]

    That's Harakiri isn't trying to be a dance floor album--it's trying to unsettle the listener. And it's succeeding.

    Noise interference is ramped up, as are counterintuitive rhythms and ugly chords, only to tie them all together into an unexpected sort of cohesion.

    Sd Laika seemingly bucks myriad electronic music trends to create a body of work that harkens back to the genre's classic beginnings.

    From beginning to end, it moves from tense sound collages toward polyrhythmic music that can be danced to--but the progression isn’t explicit, and neither is anything else.

    SD Laika compresses space to the point that That's Harakiri becomes constricted by its own sheer density; appropriately, the album is suggestive of inner space, one that is seemingly fraught with anxiety. As a result it's difficult to sustain such energy and tracks seem to be rapidly exhausted, most are less than three minutes. But such are the ideas and impact of them that they linger a lot longer.
