5 stars It is a strange and wonderful thing to hear a myriad of the instruments of the East played in an ethereal and electronic context. "K.A. 4" is an excellent example of this unique fusion and how well Verticchio pulled it off: an Indian drone that sounds distinctly electronic opens, and a furiously played sitar is the centrepiece. The track ends with a swell of strange sounds and the return of the drone. The whole album takes various Asian sounds and then makes them feel out of this world. Words can't completely convey just how otherworldly and yet so right this comes out as. It is like an industrial ambient band going backpacking through India, Southeast Asia, and then on through China and Japan, along the way cutting tracks with traditional musicians, and then assembling the project into an excellent whole. Or you can think of it as an artifact dropped by extraterrestrials who decided to do a take on some Earth music. And this is all the work of one man! Verticchio is remarkably talented, and the proof is this masterful album.
