"The best thing I've heard all year..." --Philip Sherburne, Critical Beats, The Wire. "The kind of record that will be manna to the ears of all Sahko heads, this eponymous 12" very nearly didn't make it to vinyl with the masters almost destroyed during Hurricane Katrina... it'll just make you treasure it all the more, though. Drawing inspiration from the 'Who's Who' of leftfield minimalism, Reanimator teases strands of Pan Sonic, Vainio and Force Field, then weaves them into a heady tapestry that integrates fluctuating rhythms, dubby shadows and test-tone oscillations into the kind of sound you'd kill to pick up on a decaying pirate broadcast. Opening with the mealy rhythms of 'Clicks and Drones May...', the shadowy Reanimator duo (it's a secret!) proffer the kind of bare-boned take on machine music that makes you fill in the gaps, creating a creative tension that can't help but pique your undivided attention. By no means restricting themselves to a thin-based approach, the likes of 'Special Powers' and 'Blown Subidah' offer forth a richer take on the minimal foothills -- staking the dub upfront and imposing, then letting the delay pedals and fried samplers make merry around them. Given the name 'evil dub' by those responsible, Reanimator's sound is thick yet sparse, recalling the best of Sahko and announcing the appearance of a new cat in the minimal jungle."
