Jump-cuts abound on the second postal collaboration by Reynols spokesmodel and one of the charming lads from Volcano The Bear, shifting the album through contrasting moods with cinematic élan. Touches of the anarchic and exotic, such as mbira, hazy Mexican-style trumpet, and Hawaiian guitar on “King Pancreas,” bring to mind Volcano The Bear, while melodic piano cells add a Cluster-like charm. The deeper and darker “Punk Butter,” with its layered, bowed drones that progress to a dissonant swell, concludes with thundering mallet-struck drums, impossible cymbals, and frantic slide work. Edition of 200.
