10 year anniversary? Whadda ya mean 10 year anniversary?!? Hey PVT! Thanks for making us feel Ooooold... Damn.
Seriously, it only feels like yesterday that the Sydney 3 piece burst onto the scene with their unique and refreshing brand of instro math rock vibes and dropped their stunning 2005 debut - Make Me Love You. Now they've gone and packaged it up as a special 10 year anniversary edition and are doing a couple of shows to highlight the fact, that A. the album still sounds as fresh as the day it was released and B. we're all getting OLD.
We caught up with the boys ahead of their November shows (which you really shouldn't miss) and set them the challenge of providing us with a special PVT A E I O U - Can I Buy a Vowel? playlist. Here's what we got back -
Ascension - Napolian [Rejoice]
This guy does really plastic sounding almost-pastiche tracks, and I love that he's on a label called Software.
Ascension - The Bug [Angels & Devils]
London Producer The Bug, I can't help but think of Tricky and NIN with this track. No bad thing.
Earth Vision - Music For Plants
Sometimes you go off radar on a Spotify search and you dig up some gold. Hyper-real tribal electronica complete with bird noises and Avatar vibes.
ExpRand Trace - Lee Gamble [Dutch Tvashar Plumes]
London guy that makes really forward thinking electronica/techno.
Iceni Strings - Nathan Fake [Steam Days]
Norfolk's finest, Nathan Fake. Nice mix of analog machines and computer over-saturation. Tasteful techno. Believe.
Interference - Holly Herndon [Platform]
Weird. Bold. Abrasive. Subtle. Futuristic. Intelligent. Satisfying.
On The Reach Of Explanations - Ian William Craig [A Turn Of Breath]
Nice to hear something new that sounds like nothing else, this guy is an operatic singer that does live tape manipulations.
Oxen Calm - Seekae [The Worry]
Buds from Sydney and fellow machine lovers Seekae. Tearing It Up
Used To Be - Anthony Naples [Body Pill]
Big riff. London pirate radio vibes.
Universal Consciousness - Aeoliah [Inner Sanctum]
Music in the New Age. Music for relaxation.
