AllMusic Review by

"Low tech by necessity and desire," Farmer (Breadwinner, Eggs, Mao Tse Helen, Hotel X, Manwich Tantrum) mixes noise, environmental sounds, and very low bass rhythms -- with inconsistent results. When it works, though, it works very well, sounding like early Butthole Surfers. Farmer has spent a decade four-tracking, and has built up a mountain of material. This record, the debut trickle from that creative heap, combines Farmer's vintage drum-machine tape loops and low-fi production to create a warm, hissing sonic odyssey.
