A drone duo that always challenges assumptions of the genre, Leap-Seconds is not afraid to fail, or to expose some of the inner confusion involved in creation. Some of the eight tracks here stutter with tentative beats, abandoned lines, that right themselves eventually. The space that Neil Robinson and Peter Blundell give to their ideas to find their voices results in a deeper, more human sound than most electronica.
Delay and reverb battle it out for sonic supremacy; finger-picked guitars, atonal piano, the occasional ghostly vocal phrase weave in and out of the din, adding an air of myth, but also one of approachability. It is this humanity in the midst of technology and experimentation that makes this a warm winner. 8/10 -- Mike Wood (16 January, 2007)
