"Genius name, dark and stormy electronica - the sound of the astronauts on the international space station having a jam session whilst waiting for their new pump, and beaming the results to a teddy bears picnic back on earth." - Subba Cultcha

"You don't get much more jingly than 'Ice Cream Truck', it's a CFTPA classic, chuffing along in a swirling analogue dreamworld, his hazy downbeat mumble complementing the euphoric keyboard that really does sound the most ice creamy thing ever...he gets out the distorto pedal for closer, an alternative version of 'Green Cotton Sweater' that sounds like the most beautiful song ever made buried under a jackhammer electro beat stuck in a fuzzy loop. Genius." -Norman Records
