Light jazzy torch songs stand out on this release, that also features strange electronic excursion that border on quiet techno in a Stereolab vein. It's a strange brew and it takes a few listens to get with the funky 50's style vocal melodies and call and response mixed with electronic warblings.

Just the damnest thing.
