FROM THE ARCHIVES//  Seefeel fell out of the public eye for over a decade and reconvened (while adding former Boredoms drummer Iida Kazuhisa) at a Warp Records event in 2008.  The “Faults” EP was the recorded outcome of this reunion and it prevails with a different approach that is nearly the opposite of their fluid, gauzy albums from the early ’90s.  That, most likely, is why the EP was wrongly overlooked.  Rhythms are heavy and puncture the silence, scattered debris comes out melodic, overdriven electronics sound alien, and vocals are slurred into an amorphous haze.  Yet everything is composed and tightly wound and the resulting sound is one of a delirious pop band that seems to thrillingly elude any easy categorization.  ”Faults” only contains four songs, but its bold, singular sound still enraptures three years after its release. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
