This is the weird, shifty cousin of Autechre who is snickering from the corner at you. Just smile, put your money on the table, grab your music, and calmly walk away.
Go home, grab your best set of cans, and open the doorway to a new sonic dimension. Breathe deep, submit, and explore. Obstacle of Affliction
