"Dark Garden, the new album of thrillingly idiosyncratic analog buzz by Nerve Net Noise (aka homemade synth duo of Hiroshi Kumakiri and Tagomago) , is the perfect entry point for listeners new to their singular sonic world. This album of short, song-like synthesizer pieces might take its cues from manga, science fiction, early electronic music, and minimal techno, but as always, the Tokyo band resides firmly in their own inexplicable universe. Dark Garden assimilates fractured beats, stuttering pulses, naked static, and impatient drones into an album that's somehow both playfully alive and coldly menacing. In his liner notes, synth builder Kumakiri describes spirits that lurk in the shadows and watch people go about their lives, existing in a parallel world that bring to mind fairy tales and myth. Nerve Net Noise's music is similarly just out of reach, present in the natural world but not quite a part of it. For fans of Klaus Schultze, Jessica Rylan, Henri Pousseur, or Pan Sonic."
