In 1922 Franz Kafka wrote to Milena Jesenská: "Mein Leben ist das Zögern vor der Geburt". 'Streets Aren't For Dreaming Youth' resembles that same hesitancy in a very subtle way. Fear and hesitation, admiration and awe into one breath, felt within one sound. In this album the cold sphere of indecision isn't just attached to the warmth of veneration but merged into a unified bliss. As a sublime synthesis of electronics and ambient, of dance elements and still enjoyable quite parts these tracks are somewhere in between the head and the hands.
