"John Charles Wilson, aka Frog Pocket, is back again with this new mini-album on Benbecula. 'My Mentle Ass' is a rampant, manic, squashed, chaotic breakbeat onslaught which ends very gracefully and in keeping with the deep, folkloric chimes and rich sound exhibited on 'Jupiter Lady Mountain Village'. Like stumbling into a strange kind of late night show, lit only by candles and shimmering cavelight, this is like some other worldly Bach recital gone astray, or Afx and Squarepusher junior on a mad one, beats underpin melancholy melodies voiced by delicately plucked guitars.. 'Hey hope', meanwhile, makes you want to don sensible cardigans and hit the slopes. There's a clear headed thoroughly Scottish musician at work here, the crunch of electronics tempered by the soothing melody of a slow air. Violins and stringed instruments resonate clear in the Frog pocket world, underpinned by sub bass hits and the exuberance of the stunning 'My Mentle Ass'."
