Isn’t This Dangerous? by Lefolk is a collection of rhythmic drones that lean heavily to the minimal side of minimal techno. The beats, such as they are, are more a matter of gentle pulses than overt metrics. If the highs and lows of a sine wave can be appreciated as a rhythmic contour, then at its best that is about as far as Isn’t This Dangerous? gets. A key track is the one that closes the album. Titled “Alexis” (all the titles reportedly correlate with “lost cosmonauts”), it is a slowly proceeding series of waves, afflicted with occasionally more brittle elements (MP3). There are eight tracks on the album in total. In addition to Alexis there are tributes to Gennady, Mirya, Aleksei, Piotr, Serenti, Ludmila, and Ivan.
