Through the usage of ethereal pads, passionate chords, and dreamy vocaloid melodies, Phonebox creates an atmosphere reminiscent of shoegaze masters like Slowdive, yet presented in a robotic and alienated manner on their debut EP "Some Mediocre Songs".

It's easy to imagine the Queens based producer hovering over their computer in a nearly pitch-black room, with the sole source of light being casted by their computer monitor. This illumination's gasping quality could turn any room into a portrait not unlike the album cover.

Sometimes the world is presented in ambient love ballads and sometimes in warm deep house tunes, but the whole record is undeniably taking place in the comfort of an apartment distanced from the abrasive backdrop of the bustling noise and traffic of New York City. Yet, though viewed from a distance, the relationship these settings have in Phonebox's universe are vital; much like the relationship between the flickering lights and a dark room, that which is warm and alien, and the ambience and club beats.

The cassette edition comes with two remixes from Naked Flames and FRATIMA
