All Music Guide:

The man behind Sad Rockets and a member of Bergheim 34, Andrew Pekler began recording under his own name in the early 2000s. Station to Station, released by Scape in April of 2002, was born due to a culmination of a number of things: Pekler's move from California to Heidelberg, his increased interest in electric jazz, and acquaintances with saxophonist Elliot Levine and bassist Akira Ando (Pekler met Levine at a Bergheim 34 show in Philadelphia). Pekler combined his popping glitch-dub productions with improvised material played by Ando, Levine, and a handful of other musicians, thus pitting man-made and machine-made musics against one another.
