"Polina Lapkovskaja alias Polly and Manuel da Coll alias Yossarian have already established themselves as a contemporary producer duo full of surprises. Somewhere in between Stereolab, Les Rita Mitsouko, Siouxsie Siuox, The Slits, Can, Chrisma and Nico the Munich duo has made themselves comfortable with their electronic sizzling.
Tribal rhythms, energetic krautrock, disco strings and Witch-House-moments are equal partners in their kaleidoscope arrangements. All of them magically glisten thanks to Polly’s cool emotional speech song and promote double bottom pop that clings to the listener and at the same time sounds somehow bitchy. "
Ben Butler & Mousepad are back in WORM after a residency in 2010.
"There is, in Ben Butler's music, a bristling and expansive melodic madness inherited from the baroque experiments of 1970s studio megalomaniacs such as Vangelis, Alan Parsons, Triumvirat or even ELO, devoured, digested, sent back in time and thrown up over some bizarrely funky rhythmic backdrops that one would perhaps define as nerdxploitation."
