"For such a sparse and cozy album, it's surprising how much textural and rhythmic diversity is present in Danny Lango's latest tape offering, When You Are Not Resting. The Oklahoman singer-songwriter works in a tonal greyscale; his melancholy, droney arrangements loom ominously, just above the ground like a balloon nearly deflated. Despite the overcast climate that hangs over much of the album, it is home to a variety of textures. It feels organic and alive. Humid pulses of airy sound float aimlessly through a jungle of bustling percussion on the opening track, "Ten Killer". There's a sense of hushed urgency that pervades the track, reminding one of Yo La Tengo's skittish drone-pop delivery. While "Ten Killer" sets its focus on its intensely layered rhythm, a track like "Escape" feels much looser, calling gritty guitar chords to attention while a crunchy drum machine loops in the foggy distance. It has a certain wobbliness that reminds me of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, giving the tune charm and fleshing out the spacey atmosphere surrounding it. The album is constructed very meticulously, as each track bears a different focus and textural direction, yet the same cohesive mood sticks throughout. When it comes to hi-fi cassette music, When You Are Not Resting is an exemplary effort, bearing an otherworldly, slightly folky vibe that recalls the freak-folk whimsy of Woods and, at times, Wolf Parade's warbly, off-kilter energy."

"As someone who adamantly sides with Harry Partch’s disdain for the commercial fascism known as western pop, I can greatly get down with this lo-fi, 1950’s style-reverb-worshipping, pop/folk serenade/dittery. The tones herein recall early Clientelle spaciness, but with less worry about the softness of pitch-perfect vocal washings. Is this ‘Punk Spirit’ or just the sound of the fuck-it revolution?! Twelve tones my ass! Careful background accompaniment fades in and out of trashcan-distant vocals/guitarstrum and simple, stoccato bass lines; a tasteful drum kit makes appearances here & there. Did I mention reverb? I should mention reverb; what it must sound like for Oscar the Grouch whenever he gets woken up by majestic, reverberant passersby. It’s not gratuitous; Danny Lango arranges the songs (or does the songs, like, totally arrange DL, man?) so that the space is consistently filled with bubble-gum-s(t)icky hooks that us listeners will only later realize we’ve been laced with such deeply buried, noisy additives."
