Sweetly abrasive. Major emphasis on treble and sugar with frequencies that have actually hurt my ears.I've said it before but worth mentioning again for this delightful, mind-bogglingly noisy LP.

Sitting at the upper levels of scary music, this EP sees drugs, paranoia and degeneracy provide the vibe.
