- Phonics by Bastian Void
9/10 Pony Wilson 11th November 2013
With two killer releases this year - Looks Realistic's 'Where Does It Come From' and Homeowner's 'Themes from 172' - and a new Gay Shapes cassette supposedly due before the end of the year, it's pretty apparent that Joe Bastardo doesn't actually need sleep - which is funny considering that his particular brand of hazy yet ecstatic slabs of analog synth heaven work beautifully as a sleep aid, albeit one that leaves you in a state of hypnagogic limbo.
Phonics is not a new direction for Bastian Void, but it feels like a culmination of the cyberpunk kosmische soundtrack to an educational film about pastoral androids that has more or less been the Bastian Void MO from the onset, and it's a very good thing that he continues to explore the inner depths of his niche. Another outstanding release for both Bastian Void and Chemical Tapes, and a must have for fans of OPN, BoC, and R2D2.
