“[Apeshedder] is five tracks of gorgeous thick synth timbres and playful drum programming, and the sound is generally warm and organic despite some harder elements scattered throughout the painfully short 18-minute running time. The whole album is laced with vibes of golden era Warp Records and frequently lands somewhere smack in the middle between the more dark and aggressive half of Boards Of Canada, and the smoother side of Aphex Twin.” Straumur.
“…It sounds like a great place to visit, the world of Apeshedder: a psychedelic, sometimes dance-y, sometimes reflective world where bleeps and blobs are made of wandering colours and wonderful collisions. There’s a hint of madness there, too, as the manic laughter and wobbly guitar interjections of “Transikh” illustrate … The album’s happier and hipper than the likes of Squarepusher, but too demented to sit quietly at the table of ambient without pushing everyone else’s faces into their mashed potato.” Joe Shooman for The Reykjavík Grapevine.
