"Returning to Berlin-based label City Slang in 2014 for their first full-length since 2010's Speculation (released on Domino) and their eighth album in total, Instrument is a landmark record for the group. The serenely soft melodies of No Wave pioneer Arto Lindsay adorn three tracks ('Many Descriptions', 'Classify' and 'The Longest Escalator in the World'), offering up a new perspective. As much a progression as a refresher course for older material, it is arguably their most refined record so far. The music of brothers Robert and Ronald Lippok and Stefan Schneider has always existed in its own world. Schneider's prominent and melodic bass lines sit between drums, guitar, synths and peripheral electronics from the Lippok brothers. The amount of depth is vast; the invitation is nevertheless there to explore the complex levels beyond the basic instrumental foundations, or to simply let the tide of sound wash over and envelope you."
