The Wire review:

"Two of Norway's premier electronics maestros Alexander Rishaug and Lasse Margaug release what is only their second album's worth of collaborating for decades. One assumes they only feel compelled to do this when they think they've gotten it right. And the music here is exceptional. The first pieces feature huge plates of sound moving around like whales cruising beneath icebergs. After that it's off to some woods near a carpenter's hut, where we can lie down with a hint of bandsaws in the distance. collapse in on themselves, decaying all the while. "

Boomkat:

"Norwegian noise miscreants Lasse Marhaug and Alexander Rishaug remerge their exploratory duo for the first time in 13 years, or since Feel Free At Home [2004], with a narcotically affective episode of electro-acoustic fumes and tense but free string composition within Corneal Clouds. The results stem from recordings made in Oslo, 2012, which underwent a five year fermentation process before it was sealed for dankness by Stephan Mathieu and now dispatched by The Tapeworm.

In four parts they offer the decayed and tumultuous results of that extended process, plunging us into a thistly, overgrown soundfield that recalls the marvellous abstraction of early electronic instigators such as Gottfried Michael Koenig as much as the mottled textures and reactively organic micro-kinetic structures of Kevin Drumm or Jason Lesscalleet, for example.

But where those comparisons stop short, Rishaug Marhaug infuse their creations with a gloomy Nordic shadowing individual to their sound, drawing parallels with black metal atmospheres and even aspects of Deathprod's deceptively static stoicism, holding the ear's gaze like a steeply pitted, placid fjord viewed from But don't worry, just wear some goretex in the comfort of your home and the experience will be bracingly pleasurable.
