"The first Crank album, Wanton Phenomena, was hailed by The Wire magazine as 'a staggering album... a stunning advance for U.S. electronica'. Just months prior to that album release, the artist Danny Zelonky introduced the lavishly-praised Approximate Love Boat album under his LowRes moniker on the Plug Research label. Now, Mille Plateaux presents a third, all-new album, Heftibag, which continues to build upon the many innovations of the above-mentioned releases. Although Heftibag is again an entirely electronic collection, the fact of being electronic no longer seems to be so central to the work. And, though again evoking jazz, hiphop, Cuban and electro-acoustic themes, the music strives neither for faithfulness to reality nor complete abstraction, though it allows itself to draw near both poles over the course of the album. Crank enlists a superb Swedish artist known as Smyglyssna to produce a remix for this release, and the result is a most perceptive reinterpretation of the lovely/ugly track 'Mala Vista', which perfectly complements the very particular landscape of Heftibag."
