CRITIC REVIEWS

Tiny Mix Tapes

As last year’s attention-grabbing Adhesive EP intimated, the new Container is a richly rhythmic powerhouse of gleeful propulsion. The beats trump everything, including the tones that are so overdriven they might as well be more beats.

Exclaim!

On LP, Container shows his ability to create a complete barnburner of an album in the least flashy and showy manner possible.

Resident Advisor

LP might be Ren Schofield's shortest album as Container, but it's also the one that best captures the full elemental force of his music.

AllMusic
All of Container's recordings are amazing, but this one is his most concentrated burst of energy yet, and it cements his status as one of the most exciting and inventive artists in the underground American electronic music scene, as well as one of the most successful in merging noise with techno.

Pitchfork

There’s not much difference between this new album and his previous two full-length efforts, which perhaps explains why he gave them all the same generic title of LP (all the songs on each have one-word titles, too). Still, dig in closely and subtle modifications and peripheral developments emerge.

This dude´s unrelenting and mean approach to techno really satisfies the reptilian part of my brain.

An explosive and uncontained tour-de-force of an album, mostly acomplished as a powerhouse collection of industrial-techno songs than as an album in fact, but noticeably good enough to compose one.
