This document of the NYC trio’s 2002 J-jaunt is heavier on electronics than usual (no bass or guitar this time), and explodes with crunch, crackle, and sizzle. It’s some of Monotract’s most inorganic music, robust and unintelligible. Roger Rimada, Nancy Garcia, and Carlos Giffoni’s crowded mix has room for a rhythmic base, but the beats are just another conflicting voice within many. Packaged inside origami-style card foldout, silkscreened in eyeball-searing pink, designed by Jelle Crama.
