Boomkat Product Review:
"Total Folklore is an urban album, the jagged, overblown electronics mimicking the grit and chaos of Brooklyn. As a fan of the epic walk, Friel channeled the commuter while writing and recording these songs. In fact, many songs are paced specifically with walking in mind. The album is peppered with recordings Friel made on his phone while walking around cities, from the sound of kids playing basketball in Brooklyn to the sound of a Con Edison strike in Manhattan, to the sound of the inside of a panchinko parlor in Tokyo. The album opens with the majestic “Ulysses,” a 12-minute epic anchored by crunching beats and shimmering arpeggios before launching into “Windmills” and the instantly arresting “Valedictorian”. Throughout, Friel includes short intermissions, improvisations and field recordings, as if the listener is waiting on the corner for the walk signal. From the screeching glissando of the synths of “Scavengers” to the frenetic pulse of “Thumper,” Total Folklore captures the energy and irreverence of punk, while keeping a foot firmly planted on the streets of electronic pop."
