5 stars Popular? No. Mechanical? No. A treat? Definitely Yes

Google says the title of this fine record means 'treaty of popular mechanics'. I prefer to believe it means 'popular mechanical treats'. ZNR's second album is collection of perfect tiny mechanisms, more recognisably chamber music than their first, gentler, with fewer of the surreal sonic shocks. It is again a series of miniatures, this time much more like Racaille's 'Six Petites Chansons' EP. Fred De Fred (Yes, that Fred) does some subtle, quiet spray-canning here and there, and there's also some free jazz sax, but otherwise, no WTF moments. Again, Satie is everywhere. Out of time, durable.
