One Eight Zero is heady pop sparkle in unexpected shapes, exactly the kind of off-kilter perfection you might dream up if you were a band that loved the Beach Boys, Cornelius, the Associates, Squarepusher and music from computer games (for the record, Findo Gask love We Love Katamari). Jigsaw drapes sublime choral harmonies amongst skittering drums and a post-rave synth breakdown, somehow walking a perfectly judged line between frenzy and elegance, while Nubo carries echoes of Kraftwerk and New Order, but also throws heart-stoppingly delicate vocal swoops and mournful, almost mariachi-like trumpets into the mix. Complete with deliciously filthy bass, the band's own 'Ripped Speaker' remix of One Eight Zero is a head-spinning exercise in a kind of crazed, psychedelic dancehall.
