-"Pilia has become Italy's finest music export this year. After his stunning release on Last Visible Dog, it was clear he had little competition. His subsonic drones are a thing of beauty; pulling in and pushing the listener away simultaneously, keeping him or her in a constant state of limboith all things Stefano Pilia does, there is an understated and simple beauty beneath them." (Brad Rose, Foxy Digitalis)

-"Guitar, electronics and various small rackety sounds collect themselves into a haze of infinite possibilities. At certain points there's a sparseness to their approach recalling Charalambides' quiet explosions; at others there's a weird and wooly organic depth closer to some of the contemporary giants of the Finnish underground." (Byron Coley, Harp)

They'll be on time, but will they be in tune?

How come all you anarchists don't pack up and move to Somalia? They have no government there. What's keeping you here?
