released on AVNL Records / Sewage Tapes (rip)
review from Igloo Magazine (sweden):
" Pop electronica in a rickety box held together with baling wire and duct tape, with a glossy cache of inspired melody inside.
The meaninglessness of genre has almost reached critical mass in electronic music, with microscenes flourishing, dispersing and morphing into something else as quickly as some pundit pins a label on them. Once having grasped method and process, whether software or saxophone, divergent thinking seems to have a far greater influence on empathic music making than history, geography or generation. Independent artists, no matter how connected, have never been more independent to follow their muse, experiment, and head toward their own future.
At only fourteen years of age, it hardly seems likely Hungarian native Máté Janky has had much time to plumb the archives and who knows if he even cares to do so. He seems busy enough releasing music under several names, running his own label and making visual art as Vviolent Force. (II) is his third full-length release as Alley Catss, pop electronica in a rickety box held together with baling wire and duct tape, with a glossy cache of inspired melody inside. High-res low fidelity that suggests sidelong glances at vaporwave played to the beat of thwacking, evolved rhythms and a gleam only occasionally falling under dark cloud.
A truly buoyant record, a long hour of heady entertainment that bodes well for the future of a very independent mind in the herd. "

Fokkawolfe's review : "i0 by Alley Catss is a too raw noise and power soundscape world of drone and hiss, electronic collisions of effects, metal machine music for 2054, when we really make it to Mars, bereft of human flesh, pure machine bodies communicating in code, searching the red dust for signs of millennial old life forms, beaming back packages of information in indecipherable languages to be read by AI life forms only."
