***Along with a liberal dose of borrowed beats and noises, the eleven songs on Kleptophonica include healthy splatterings of cassette deck tomfoolery, Speak'n'Spell abuse, typewriter percussion, lap steel warblings, echo nonsense, singing-into-the-washing-machine experiments, push-button sample blasts, as well as more conventional instrumentation like drum sets, maracas and keyboards. Using varying degrees of "unauthorized remixing," Agent Nova and Mor-X (both veterans of Milk Cult and Steel Pole Bath Tub) aim each song in its own direction, as melodies and rhythms are added and twisted and stretched on top of tape loops and scratchy thrift store records. The result is a softer, gentler sort of Frankenstein. More song-oriented then previous Milk Cult records, Kleptophonica is also a return to more basic recording. Whereas Project M-13 took about a month to record and an exhausting two years to edit, Kleptophonica, recorded in Olympia, Washington, at Mag Rec One, was completed in five days.
