"Andrew Broder aka Fog started to make this album with one simple question on his mind. Is there more to using a turntable to make your music than as a vehicle for showing how good you are at playing the turntable? The answer is complicated, but it's also beautiful, as well as funny, sometimes sad and, in its own downbeat way, sort of uplifting. Or to put it another way, the answer can be yes. Influenced by post-rock, folk and blues as much as hip hop, Broder has aimed to make a record which moves you, rather than just making you bob your head and your mind reveling in the technique. It's a risky strategy, leaving Fog open to all manner of snide asides, but we think he succeeds admirably. This is still a cut and paste album but it also uses guitars and Broder's singing to make a unique sounding record of single-minded strangeness."
