PVT - 'Homosapien'

This idiosyncratic sonic world is wonderfully beguiling

PVT - 'Homosapien'

8 / 10 With their 2008 LP ‘O Soundtrack My Heart’, PVT were in competition with Caribou and former Warp labelmates Battles. Yet while their contemporaries started edging towards broader influences, the Australian trio’s stubborn commitment to sleek futurism has left them out of fashion. ‘Homosapien’ mightn’t change that, but it’s terrific nonetheless, a coiling gothica sci-fi soundtrack that cocoons Richard Pike’s echo-soaked vocal amid pulsing, binary-code electronics. From the sun-blushed tides of ‘Evolution’ to the pronged arcade motif of ‘Nightfall’, this idiosyncratic sonic world is wonderfully beguiling.
