"Fly Pan Am return with a 3 song EP of fractured, tape infested motorik rock experiments sure to please fans and detractors alike, sharpening the ears of the former while the latter sharpen their knives. Sedatif en Frequences et Sillons, which roughly translates as 'grooved frequency sedative', is an intransigent slab of self-referential auto-criticism by our favorite young conceptualists. Love 'em or hate 'em, Fly Pan Am stick to their agenda of acutely self-conscious musical manipulations, examining their own materials and assumptions to yield new compositions of uncompromising formalism. Side 1 ('De Cercle en Cercle...') is a medley or sorts, consisting of phrases and fragments reconfigured and replayed from last year's debut 3 sided LP. Side 2 features 'Efferant/Afferant', a new piece of somnambulist clockwork repetition, with the band laying down a strict, static groove while various tape manipulations penetrate the mix to create polyrhythms, dissonances and additional textures."
