"After a long period of isolation inside a room full of computers, cigarettes, coffee and cute girls, the Trabant boys have brewed an addictive home potion of their own consisting of clever as well as inspired compositions. Being collectors of strange/broken/old instruments and electronic toys, Trabant's music is dynamic in texture and rich with colorful sounds deriving from everything between a hammer and a fly. A growling, animal-like bass comes together with vocals and raw beats; silly sounds with beautiful organ drones; midi saxophone, electribe, harmonium and electric guitars but above all brilliant programming full of inimitable Trabant character and inventive twists. The result is an energetic album that is both engaging and continually interesting in every aspect due to its finely tuned clash of minute attention to detail and charming roughness. 'It's a blend of robot technology and what we humans still have to offer to music,' explain the Trabant boys themselves. The members of Trabant have been working together in one way or other for the past nine years in various bands within the Reykjavik music scene, such as Quarashi, Unun, Apparat Organ Quartet, Slowblow, The Funerals, Kvartett O Jonson og Grjoni, and Kanada."
