"Bouncing Radar Beams Off
the Moon" CD
Genre: dub, electronic
I guess you could call this psychedelic electronic

Bouncing Radar Beams Off the Moon will be a treat for dub fans, though I find the formula can get a little tedious
after awhile ("London 67" and lengthy "Pie Eyed Piper" drag).
Fortunately, these guys do keep things interesting with slick sound
and some nice melodies - the attention to detail is certainly
appreciated. Opener "Send" is a refreshing wave of electronic dub, and
"Narcatic" is loose and interesting. At fifty minutes, this record
is surely geared towards dubheads, but it is by no
means a boring or unsuccessful effort.
