Lauren Laverne once observed of TVAM that Joe Oxley’s one-man band sounds like a club-friendly version of Spiritualized. Laverne was right. Many of the tunes on debut LP Psychic Data combine big techno beats with those perky psychedelic/shoegaze/Krautrock sounds that Jason Pierce was so good at back in the day. There’s a song on here called ‘Porsche Majeure’, which is an excellent title.
One man experimentation focussed electronic rock band TVAM has shifted his sights onto the kraut/psych sound and brought us Total Immersion on his own label Psychic Data, and it’s wall of sound that journeys off into space. The flip side comes with a remix from Invada based dark synth wave duo The KVB.
TVAM is like a solo bedroom version of a noise rock band who are trying to play grooves. Gas and Air / Cannibals has a strong, crunchy texture to it, plus fine-sounding tunes underneath. This single is released as a 5” record, because why the hell not? Lathe-cut too, which means there are only 77 copies: demand expected to be high!
Static Caravan release this new single from TVAM, a solo project that makes a kind of punk music influenced and warped by some of the 20th Century’s most challenging ideas on media and culture. Porsche Majeure / We Like Fires has been manually lathe cut into clear vinyl in an edition of only 100: so only one copy per customer please!
