Listing Detail Tabs

2008 album by Sydney, Australia’s Pivot (later renamed PVT) on renowned UK electronica label Warp Records. The trio blended math rock and electronic styles.

Pivot are already feted back home in Australia for the rich, art-noise sounds of their 2005 debut, Make Me Love You; this is their first international release, following Warp's decidedly enthusiastic offer of a 16-album deal. Like all the best instrumental music, it's evocative stuff: the trio's multi-layered blend of vintage synths, skittering beats and crashing post-rock instrumentation keeps your mind's eye busy with images of futuristic cityscapes, gallant space troopers and, on the riotous title track, Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis teaming up to battle Rage Against the Machine for sonic supremacy. Autechre, Squarepusher and Aphex Twin are all obvious comparisons, and this is certainly the kind of music folk will listen to while wearing expensive headphones. But it's also an album built on great swells of human emotion, which probably explains why Sigur Rós recently hand-picked Pivot to support them. It would be a terrible pity if these warm, heartfelt compositions were entirely lost to the chin-stroking brigade.
