Claus Larsen has been drastically changing his musical style with his past several releases and this new Klute EP is no exception to the rule. Gone for the most part are the sampled guitars and processed vocals. Instead Claus is relying on his natural voice to belt out the usual Klute style lyrics. The tone of all of the tracks have much more in common with Leatherstrip than with Klute. You could almost call this EP, Positive Depression II if it wasn't for the lack of orchestral programming. This new incarnation of Klute almost seems to be an electronic version of old school punk regardless of how hard that might be to imagine. I can sense the deep seeded hatred the dominant political system and the desire to lash out at those responsible for its inception. An very intriguing switch of musical styles just as Leaetherstrip is moving away from the hard core electro to more of a orchestrated electronic symphony, Klute moves away from the electronic guitar hybrid towards something less riveting and more conventional.
