"Click-clack - click-clack - click-clack: The beat of riding on a train before the invention of pneumatic suspension was no jazz. But combined with the landscape passing by the window its steady pulsing beat had consequences: digressing thoughts, imagination kicking in - roll it! This principle can be heard on Saroos' third album. The three band members, who live in Berlin and Munich, toured Italy by train numerous times. They liked it a lot, they say. You travel more slowly, you tour at low revs, with enough click-clack to make it click in the head. Take "Tsalal Nights". A rhythm, straight as if drawn with a sewing machine, yet the music lets your brain whir casually and playfully in all sorts of directions. Retro-futurism in a slightly psychoactive form - more H.P. Lovecraft than Jules Verne. When guests came round in the studio, the samplers remained turned off. This, of course, leaves marks. Not all as big as Fenster's Tadklimp, who contributed a bagful of sounds and had his fingers on the mixing console. Whoever expected a jam album from Saroos? But this is it." (label info)
