Now these Aussie's return with a snappily abbreviated moniker & some considerably stronger songs than before. Formerly named Pivot, they've hit upon that hinterland between ambient electronica, post-rock, prog soundtrack & even sleazy 70's electro-rock such as Suicide (or Gazza Numan!). The ideas on this new album veer between the antiquated & the revelatory. Spliced together, you're left standing with a rather remarkable record that sounds strangely dated in spots yet utterly compulsive - you'll happily bask in its retro-futurism. They're indeed capable of sounding like Fuck Buttons & Grinderman at the same time whilst another track possesses a sort of Coil-esque gothic wonderment throughout. Then they bring on a heavily percussive poppy track that recalls These New Puritans mixing it with Foals or something, the vocals processed, sampled & looped in a riveting way. Comparisons have been drawn with label mates Battles and I can see a definitive thread linking the two. Melding live, rockier instrumentation with electronic sensibilities can often lead to disaster but I think these guys pretty much succeed on this record - the avenues explored have plenty of life, colour & power within.
