“The duo of California's (balkh) Eriijk Rêssler and Doriandra Smith showcase their live layered loop-based attractions on this, their second release for Readymades Tapes. Describing their process as "snapshots of remembered moments that have only just occurred", the repetitive cycles of Side A's didgeridoo-like tones charm with their mantric ritual - hypnotic, heady and seductive. The loping, evenly rhythmic pace brings it a bit closer to rock music than the rest of this batch giving it an accessible edge that leaves you wanting more. The flip is freakier spinning looped voices - speech fragments, operatic old time radio and religious intonations - into a phantasmic soup.”
