The layered pop samples from their debut LP 7AM are absent, but the duo still builds from the past — sculpting something both innovative and vaguely familiar.

All in all, this is a solid experimental record with the influences of house and techno apparent, but not outrightly ripped off.

More ambitious, more experimental, more confident, it adds muscle and sophistication.

If Tracer has significant replay value, it's for the parsing of the details of its light-filled surface, for the sounds themselves.

Coming up with interesting sounds isn’t an issue for these guys, it’s putting them together that is.

Even though there is definitely an organic sense to their music, it still has ways to go if it wishes to grow into a fully developed life form.

Tracer, alas, sounds like it’s trying to play a little bit to the expectations of others

When Teengirl are on form, their music is a heady thing: house music sent delirious on a glut of ideas, or pop working to some half-known criteria.
