"Vancouver's Daniel Gardner aka 'Frivolous' has released two 12" EPs on Background Records so far, making him known for minimal clicking house with that certain flavour of its own. The current Romantek EP on Karloff now does a further step to his stylistic peculiarity, and turns out to be a true firework of slightly ironic, musical bizarreness, combined with loads of clatter and a reduced, but well-grounded house groove, being particularly effective with the floor-oriented 'Song Of The Kwaning Bird'. Especially the ever unexpectedly emerging fragments of guitars, brasses and vocals contribute to a fresh, disharmonic musicality, somewhere between Texan prairie and the jump-an-run-game-spooky-castle. Scary darkness and that cheerful way of minimalism have never been so close before."
