Caps lock abuser NON FINIRe mai, aka Alex Uratnik,
describes his music as "thoughtful-intelligent-sensitive
progressive electronic music." Alright.
Perhaps. Uratnik likes to mix his electronic rhythms with
proggy guitars and melodic vocal parts. The results are,
predictably, quite accessible - although occasionally bland and
"Finger" is an example of Uratnik's boring
side. It has some nice sounds, but repeats them tiresomely,
thereby reducing their effect. "Datenretting Karote,"
meanwhile, has a captivating, dark aura - but is far too long for its
own good. On the other hand, pilotinstaller also houses
some pretty remarkable good songs. "Sofiak" and
"Slow" are catchy, memorable instrumentals, while
"Playground" and the atypical remix of The Dismemberment
Plan's "What Do You Want Me To Say" successfully and innovatively
add vocals to the brew.
Overall, pilotinstaller is a rather neat electronic album,
although it's nothing incredible. Give the sound samples on the band's
website a try before you buy this. After all, how often do you get to
hear techno music from Slovenia?
