"Now Mwahaha will be re-issued by Plug Research and will appear for the first tine on vinyl (at last!), complete with new tracks not found on the original release, creating an expanded edition. The band consists of Ross Peacock (formerly of Clipd Beaks) and brothers Nathan and Cyrus Tilton (all three were previously in the Bay Area cult band NED). Throbbing ebb and flow, electronic undercurrents and elated pop flourishes characterize the album. Instruments are filtered through an array of analogue synths, analog drum machines exist in harmony with live drums, and other morphing walls of sound and spiraling sonic landscapes, Peacock's lyrics and often times haunting vocals distinctly ground the album. Inspiration was drawn from the tangible energy of the Oakland music scene which continues to burst with new bands and collaborations. Mwahaha took full advantage of this, enlisting friends from other bands to lend drum parts, as well as the singular voice of Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs on one of the album's stand-outs 'Love.' Anticon's Odd Nosdam also provided a notable remix upon the album's original release as well."
