LIMITED UPDATE

August 27th, 2015 / Comments Off on LIMITED UPDATE / by Mog/

IQ

Hello guys… As you might have noticed the site hasn’t been updated on a regular basis over the last two weeks. This is simply due to a family emergency that I had to fly to France. My eldest brother had a heart surgery the operation went well but he was admitted back at Henri Mondor Hospital Créteil yesterday. I am up and down for visit and so forth which leaves me limited of time for the site updates. That said my return is set for the 03rd of SEPT and from there things should roll back in place.

Apology guys
but in the meantime
do keep the good music coming.

Battles

August 25th, 2015 / Comments Off on Battles / by Mog/

Battles

New York City (2002 – present)

Battles is an American rock band that formed in New York City in 2002. The group is composed of drummer John Stanier (formerly of Tomahawk and Helmet), guitarist/keyboardist Ian Williams (formerly of Don Caballero and Storm & Stress), guitarist Dave Konopka (formerly of Lynx), and guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Tyondai Braxton (son of Avantgarde Jazz musician Anthony Braxton).

Battles released three EPs in 2004, each on a different label (Cold Sweat, Monitor and Dim Mak). Their debut LP, Mirrored, was recorded by Keith Souza and released on 14 May 2007 to widespread critical acclaim, and it generated a fair amount of buzz in indie rock circles. The album received an extremely high score of 9.1 in a Pitchfork Media review; “Atlas”, meanwhile, was voted “best single of the week” by NME, and received a glowing review in the UK’s Clash Magazine where comparisons were made to Glitter Beat. The band scored its first UK cover feature in May 2007, talking to Plan B Magazine about the making of Mirrored.

PVT

August 25th, 2015 / Comments Off on PVT / by Mog/

PVT Profile

Pivot [ Australia ] are an experimental post-rock band formed in Sydney in 1999. In May 2010 they changed their name to PVT because they received a cease and desist letter from the US Pivot informing them that they were infringing upon a registered US trademark which had been recently acquired. The Australian band decided not to challenge this legally and renamed the outfit to PVT.

Rabit Hole Urban Music: Firstly, PVT are no longer an instrumental outfit. When [ Make Me Love You ] was an ambient mute, and [ O Soundtrack My Heart ] flirted with tiny morsels of pre-programmed vocals [ Church With No Magic ] is an entirely different beast. It’s not like they’ve just decided to throw in some tambourine – the boys have a voice! And what do the lads have to say for themselves? Well… not much really. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Rather than direct articulation, here the vocals are employed to great effect like any other element.

The first single, Window, holds chopped, mutated and layered vocal sound bites, like a troupe of chanting monks are hiding in the corner of the practice room. Laurence Pike’s drumming is another standout. His work has always been masterful but not with the smack-you-in-the-face kind of rock we’re getting here, he’s all over it. And its often given its due right up front in the mix lending the album a great live feel.

The Grizzly Bear meets David Bowie (circa Labyrinth) elements of [ Church With No Magic ] may alienate those who preferred the more sombre moments of [ Make Me Love You ]. This is a dark and heavy ride – almost creepy at times – which is fine, but towards the end they almost overstay their welcome as the ” compress and release ” idea wears thin. At first I wasn’t desperate to delve back in for a repeat listen, but I will.

MAKE ME LOVE YOU

Credits
Released AUGUST 25th 2015
All Sound Arranged & Performed By – PVT

[ PVT ] – You may have noticed some hints on our pages over the last few weeks, but we can now confirm that we are reissuing our debut album ‘Make Me Love You’ to celebrate 10 years since its release this month in 2005. We’re not terribly nostalgic, but the demand for this record to get another pressing has been pretty consistent, so who the hell are we to keep denying it. ‘Make Me Love You’ is available as very limited edition 180 gram clear vinyl from the PVT store, or available to stream and download right now. And, it still sounds pretty good too.
