    It’s not all doom and gloom--though it is mostly chopped-and-twisted electro paranoia.

    Despite the barebones recording techniques and instruments--East German drum machines, a toy Casio and a Soviet-made Faemi organ, all recorded and overdubbed on primitive Tesla machines--the sounds on The Lost Tapes are immersive, complex and also difficult to classify.

    If you have a weakness for fat synth sounds and sputtering early drum machines committed to reel-to-reel tape, this stuff could set you swooning.

    The notoriously repressive Ceausescu-era authorities clearly didn't know what to make of Rosca, but his music sounds fantastic today. [Jul 2013, p.109]

    This is some of the raddest music you’re likely to hear this year. Rad in its overall excellentness and radical as to its forward-thinking nature, sounding so even today, though recorded at the height of Ceausescu’s suppression and censorship.
