"Tomcats In Tokyo are Fabrice Rey and Fabrice Marsaud. From the headphone squelching opener 'Fish And Butterflies' to the lush, cavernous spaces of 'Turbid Liquor'. From the crunching breaking glass breaks of orange flickering to the hydraulic punch that is 'Tubular Friends'. It's clear that this is a band broadcasting at a higher frequency than normal. With serious radio play for their last single, a record of the year on the Boomkat site, in fact picked as the record of the year by Isan. Sweet Gloomy Home announces the bands arrival as a full time force to reckon with. A fusion of icy beats with the clicks 'n' brightly colored techno building blocks. As much a Thomas Brinkmann as a Boards Of Canada release the album is verging on warp territory but armed with its own fully animated agenda it fucks with any established genre. An epic, emotive, atmospheric and iridescent beauty we have end product that is anything but formulaic. In short a truly impressive debut album bringing to mind Autechre, Four Tet and Thomas Brinkmann."
