Lovefingers' penchant for including brief nuggets of information about his artists, and their tracks, on 12" labels is certainly useful for lazy record-buyers. Here, he offers up a first ESP Institute 12" from "ambassadors of the River Danube" Mister Ho and Heap, promising tracks that are neither, "too salty or too sweet". Opener "Collision Resistance" is a chugging, analogue-rich affair, with a simple, two-note bassline, arpeggio electronics and spooky textures driving the track forwards. "Veils of The Beloved" is altogether breezier and more melodious, and sees the duo make merry with dreamy pads, tuneful marimba motifs, and one hell of a loved-up breakdown.
