    Acid Sunrise arrived in a nondescript package, without a press release, from somewhere in the Northwest Territories, I think. I tried to listen to it late at night but fell asleep right away and had horrible, repetitive, apocalyptic nightmares. Listening while awake is no picnic either: strange time signatures preclude normal dancing, Cosmos 954 is six minutes of static-laden droning, Somba K'e is like dog whistles mixed with variable volume and distortion effects applied to the sound of a CD skipping (it hurts). Nor can I stop listening; this shit is like an arctic mindbath. Strong points include really dope bass kicks, lack of any words or signifiers or thematic direction other than drug-basted sweathouse insanity, and extreme scariness.
    -Steve Lalla, Hour (Montréal, Canada)

    The grass is always greener on the other side, and from this side Montreal looks like a very vibrant city with lots of interesting musicians and labels. The Brise-Cul Records is already active since 2001 and has released a whole string of releases from all sorts of people. A new duo are the Yellowknives, also from Montreal, and they are described as 'a digital drone geek and a dubstep activist' and are called 'Montreal's answer to Pan Sonic', which is understandable. Monotonous blocks of rhythm, with the hissing of synthesizers to go along the trail. It doesn't quite capture the grooves of Pan Sonic, to which people can be spotted dancing, whereas the monolithic bass beat here is hardly a groove, but more a bass thump - like the head nod music I wrote about earlier on. Creepy stuff this is, with mean sounds, flying low over like a cruise missile on a mission of certain destruction. Quite underground and not the dance thing that it could have been, but I believe that was never the aim anyway.
    -Franz de Waard, Vital Weekly (Nijmegen, Netherlands)

    Des jeux de textures et d'intensités graduées avec minutie. Du début jusqu'à la fin, on a à faire à une longue tension générale, presque sans références, seulement quelques textures sonores superposées doucement de manière à garder une pression presque pénible sur l'auditeur. C'est un album très minimal, très froid, lourd, et très original! Et bizarement, pour quelques chansons, c'est peut-être l'album le plus dancable de Brise-Cul.
