"ks - digikal chords & modular chirps melt into dizzying assemblage of small sequences stumbling over each other in a sisyphean race to the bottom while armies of synthetic insects squawk mercilessly, reaching a placid 3rd gear with laser leads hovering above sharp clouds of chords.
us - wind heavy on the windows, bugs in the attic, the appliances are turning on you, the squiggles take free reign and slowly mutate into recursive rattlesnake melodies whipping through the cracks in the wall, the storm intensifies, sandpaper synthesis, moments slide by like water down a storm drain"

Bought this after the artist's set on the night of the Hausu Mountain quarantine livestream... their music was so blissful, & the temperature in my apartment had risen so high, I started having visions... a duck showed me a roomful of eggs & said, "These eggs contain the hopes & wishes of all people on Earth. They all wish to be happy & have a good life." Then he showed me MY egg... "Falseness is an illusion created by the evil mind but we're all thoughts in the good mind." What does it mean??

Humble opinion: Not only is the best thing MGG has ever done, it's also probably one of the greatest ambient albums ever. I tend to think twice about pushing play on an album of 2+ hour length but not for this one. Sounds especially fantastic on a good sound system to fill the room(s). ewcBokma
