"If you've ever had the good fortune of talking to or spending time with Tom Jenkinson, you get a glimpse of hope in a future world for music... a way forward, which is something that is getting harder to see and hear in today's cultural morass. Watching the music, almost literally, spin 'round in his brain in the course of a normal day, habitually drumming out rhythms or mouthing arrangements is like a twilight thunderstorm rolling across the plains. Scary yet beautiful nonetheless. These seven new snapshots come in the form of a fierce squall. Some may be already familiar with this album's opener: 'Do You Know Squarepusher,' a recent live favorite that leaked out in slightly different form on a one-sided 12" early this year. For those that have heard it, it has left an indelible mark: every bit as catchy as last year's breakout single 'My Red Hot Car' but, even more foreboding and challenging. From there the album moves from schizoid MCs riding a groove with square wheels and atmospheric digitized darkness to manic []pusher-patented drum 'n' bass strafing fire and (perhaps the greatest surprise) a spooky restrained cover of Joy Division's classic 'Love Will Tear Us Apart.' Oh yeah, CD format comes with a bonus disc of []pusher live in Japan."
