“Since their CDR debut in 2004 on Enlightment, Moha! has released a handful of records and LPs on Rune Grammofon and recently on the French label Gaffer Records. Kriiskav Valgus is the third release in an intense and expanding 7" collection issued by Le Petit Mignon since 2009 and precisely the first one of the Bugaboo series co-published with Berlin based graphic artist duo Bongoût. As usual, the artwork is executed with great care, coming this time with a colourful twelve page screen-printed mini book specially designed by the skilled hands of Bongoût.

As you would expect from LPM, these two tracks are probably some of the most ecstatic pieces to have emerged from the Norwegian duo. This new blitz 7" sounds almost as improvised as composed: no hesitation, no failures, no rest, just overheating and broken drum sticks. Clearly, the band can be described as"efficient". The way they constantly and quickly deconstruct every piece of pattern has a direct impact, keeping every sense tightly close to the edge.

This is Moha! possessed by a powerful light, spreading the remains of free Jazz, noise, arcade games vandals and clubbing terrorists. There's no respite in these two intense and solid tracks, both subtly composed in spite of the constant overgain and apparent mess, both spat out towards your ears throughout these ten minutes.

Originally formed as a typical drum/guitar duo, the band has recently enriched their gear to embrace more electronic devices: take an avalanche of drum parts, hints of power electronics, and pure data activism, and you'll get an idea of the substance of this record, cut by Berlin's renowned Rashad Becker.”
