"Shithouse Drifter" is a great name for a tune. That's my first observation. Secondly, I don't remember the previous albums being quite so coldly cheerful in its weirdness. I can't tell you what it's setting out to achieve and neither then by extension whether or not it achieves it. A lot of noodle, some cheap keyboard action vomited up - but in a good way, yeah? Feels more regular somehow.
There shivers the feeling of being possessed by the spirit of stationery - the repetition of seemingly trivial sounds and actions that only a stapler or photocopier could really understand without blowing its mundane cover. "Rodriguez" sounds like an early house tune from the late-ish Eighties turned inside out so it makes sense of its seams and rhythms in a different fashion. And that's all there is to say about this.
