Carnival is s doubled barreled tune that will lure you in and then twist your synapses in elastic loops, Winter Break does a repeat act and spits you out, well mangled and giggling at the silliness of it all, and then Dark Passenger comes along and picks you up, and throws you into some bass heavy locked grooves.
