Boris 'Borai' English has been collaborating with Julian Smith over the past five years, and this record follows on from their Head 4 Phuture record on Brstl last year. The title track is similar to the sound that prevailed on October's debut album; a wiry, insistent rhythm, shot through with an undercurrent of moody bass, provides a cushion for a vocal loop that exudes the paranoia of vintage industrial/ebm acts like Nitzer Ebb. Thundering tribal drums add weight to the track's swagger. "Nine Tomorrows" is a different proposition; more restrained and less oppressive-sounding, at the heart of its understated, metallic rhythm is a melody so frosty and icy, it'll cool even the warmest heart.
