To call this an EP is a bit of a misrepresentation. While it is only four songs (really, only 3 because one is less than a minute long), it still clocks in at nearly 50 minutes. Which is longer than many full lengths.
In any case, this is crammed with utterly damaged and fucked laptop noises. The first track is far from any elements of drone that often find their way into electronic noise. This track actively destroys the source sounds. In the broad sense, there are endless repetitions, but when listened to carefully, this is a constantly shifting, continually different deconstruction of sound. The second track builds a dense wall to mask the delayed guitar wandering somewhere behind before crashing down, reduced to a murky warble. The last track is minimal with quick bursts of random tone, and plenty of dead air between. Rather than the usual fire storm, this approach burns in patches.
While the audience for a record like this is small, but the emergence of Wolf Eyes as a somewhat commercially viable (check Ebay for insane prices on their out of print CDRs) band, it's apparently growing. So, for those looking for more, this is a fine platter (from a long established source) to fry your brain on. 7/10 -- Dick Baldwin (25 May, 2005)
