  • Summary: The latest full-length from the Chicago-based multimedia collective is a big step forward for the group, adding more vocals and an emotive indie-pop feel to their experimental electronic sound. Recommended for fans of the latest releases by bands such as Dntel, Hood, and Boards of Canada.

  1. It’s elegantly expressive music where warm tones from cold machines cut to the quick of human emotion.
  2. Thrives on its mixture of fuller-sounding productions and relatively traditionally-structured songs with vocals.
  3. 80
    A sustained soft explosion of hushed, aching indietronica. [June 2003, p.91]
  4. 70
    This is accessible, if sometimes austere, modern electronica, distinguished by passages of unmitigated prettiness. [May 2003, p.108]
  5. Overall, the impression generated by Tulsa for One Second is one of inoffensive pleasantness.
  6. The lack of freshness is most apparent on the disc's instrumental tracks, most of which sound like hand-me-down versions of the micro-carols on Mum's Finally We Are No One.
  7. Comatose-inducing. [Mar 2003, p.94]
