Serial Hodgepodge is not perfect, but its ambition is admirable. As the name of the album implies, Lusine has an unabashedly short attention span here. Gorgeous processed vocals on "Ask You" (think Markus Popp's So project) open the album with chilly pessimism, a current which carries throughout the album's impeccable first third. Glassy synth and displaced melodies on "Slur" pick up where the Richard D. James Album left off, while the short but soaked drone "Drip" plays off a distant piano flutter we heard on Tim Hecker's Radio Amor

However Lusine wants to make things interesting so once in a while he will throw in a brief ambient track to slow things down. Does this formula sound familiar" Sure it does. In McIlwain’s defense many other electronica duos/artists do this same sort of thing. Boards of Canada, Casino Versus Japan, and Bola all come to mind. So what’s the big problem with Serial Hodgepodge" To be honest there are multiple reasons why Serial Hodgepodge is a lackluster album so I’ll point out the minor problems little by little.
After a few years of floating around on small labels with little recognition for his exceptionally protean productions, he has come up with his best album, and he now gains the benefit - . attention - of being released on Ghostly International. Serial Hodgepodge, following a pair of low-key 12" releases on Ghostly, can be considered an improved take on 2003's Condensed, a compilation situated to play out as a listen-to-in-whole album that displayed the many paths the producer takes with his techno.
Lusine's "Serial Hodgepodge" is a strong effort by this industry veteran - I would say that this album is better than this year's other great electronica album - Proem's "Socially Inept". Every song is very interesting if it isn't catchy, and this certainly helps, especially in this genre. The "instrumentation" (or should I say "electronicization"?) is very very good. Serial Hodgepodge is fun and more exciting than most IDM artists' efforts at a populist album, but it lacks the nuance Lusine is blessed with having in his previous compositions, and it's simply too long. It would have been much more potent and fresh if it were cut down to a five or six track EP. Let's hope now that Lusine's pop feet are wet, so to speak, that he'll take his new pop aesthetic into less charted territories on his next album.
