The vinyl version of the new Shonky album is released as 2 separate 12"'s, 4 tracks each; this is part 1. Track 1 "Time Zero' -- the album's title track, lets loose with spiralling effects and a repeat-repeat vocal that heightens the psychedelic vibe. The airy chimes of "Nebula" evoke the questing spirit of Detroit and bring in a breath of Kraftwerk a la Tour De France. The obvious titular nod to Voodoo Ray is reflected in the warm, burnished tribal-tech of "Cosmic Ray". He returns to psychedelic techno with stand-out cut "Galactica," a tune whose dense atmospherics, backdrop of wolf-like wails and clever use of a female vocal would make the Belleville Three proud.Finally, Time Zero has landed and it doesn't merely justify the hype, it goes beyond. This is not a first class debut. It's a first class album, full stop. Time Zero is ripe with a musical intelligence well beyond Shonky's years."
