Pastilan Dong! is the musical persona of Kaloy Olavides, an artist known for testing the limits of what gallerygoers can enjoy or withstand. It’s no surprise that his music is similarly challenging. The nearly twenty-minutes-long first track alone tests listeners’ tolerance for sustained, textured noise—an unapologetic introduction to the record. But—should the timid turn away too soon—Pastilan Dong! also delivers doses of calm to counteract the frenetic: Love songs and non-distorted instrumental pieces create spaces around the louder, rhythmically driven songs.’

—Jose ‘Bakal’ Beduya
