PVT 'Homosapien' (album stream)
Published Feb 08, 2013After spending a month in isolation writing and recording in a rural corner of Australia, electronic experimentalists PVT have emerged with their fourth full length album, Homosapien. The album is set to be released on February 12 via Last Gang. Following up 2010's Church With No Magic, PVT has made some changes this time around and you can hear them all at Exclaim.ca.
The most notable difference on this album is the more prominent vocals of band member Richard Pike, but the trio have also worked to find a more focused sound, which makes Homosapien, according to their release, "the most song-driven and spacious record that the band has made to date." It's also, reportedly, "full of nuance and texture as anything the band has ever recorded."
The 11 tracks, engineered by Ivan Vizintin and mixed by Ben Hillier (Depeche Mode, Blur), shift effortlessly between the light and airy tones of "Shiver," to the gothic sounds of "Electric," to the electronic humming of "New Morning," redefining PVT's sound and producing a sonic collage.
Homosapien will be available February 12. Listen to the whole album now, below.
